The role of the durable power of attorney

Depending on the type of DPOA, the role of your designated DPOA includes responsibilities such as:

  • Filing your taxes
  • Managing your property
  • Making medical decisions
  • Paying your bills
  • Managing your investments
  • Signing important documents

When you die, the DPOA role is extinguished.

Choosing a durable power of attorney now protects your loved ones from confusion in the future. You can discuss your decision with your designated DPOA, and you may also gain peace of mind in determining your ideal person for protecting your property and carrying out your life wishes.
