Take control with Lasting Powers of Attorney
Research has revealed that 40%# of over-55s are unsure about the legal protection they may need if they lose mental or physical 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, 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
