Take control with Lasting Powers of Attorney
Research has revealed that 40%# of over-55s are unsure about the legal protection they need if they lose mental capacity and become unable to make important decisions.
What do you need?
You will need a legal document which gives you the power to appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf, should you become unable to do so. This is known as a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA). There are two types: Property & Financial Affairs, and Health & Welfare. Without these in place, your family could face a lengthy and expensive process with the Court of Protection.
Three steps to an LPA
1. Your adviser will take all the relevant details
2. A legal document will then be created for you
3. Simply sign and register your LPA #Key Research 2017
