There are several circumstances that may require you to have a durable power of attorney in place, including:
- Incapacity: If you become unable to make financial or medical decisions for yourself, a durable power of attorney allows someone you trust to make these decisions on your behalf.
- Absence: If you will be unavailable to make decisions for an extended period of time, such as while traveling or serving in the military, a durable power of attorney can provide peace of mind that your affairs will be taken care of in your absence.
- Illness: If you are facing a serious illness and are unable to make decisions for yourself, a durable power of attorney can ensure that your wishes are honored and your assets are protected.
