    Powers of Attorney in Disability Planning: Silver Bullet or Landmine?

    12 PM GMT

    The power of attorney began as a simple instrument for disability planning for those of modest means. However, it has become an extremely powerful tool in late-in-life-estate planning, financial management during disability and health care decision-making.

     

    This panel discussion will cover:

    • Guidance for advising clients and the attorney-in-fact about powers of attorney;
    • Ethical issues in the drafting and use of powers of attorney; and
    • Drafting powers of attorney to accommodate the continuation of the estate planning process after disability of the principal in a changing tax environment, address health care decision-making and end of life care consistent with the principal's wishes, authorize the attorney-in-fact to access the principal’s digital assets to the extent possible, and customize a power of attorney to reflect the client's unique situation rather than relying on standard forms.
