Powers of Attorney Sessions
What Makes a Good Fiduciary?
A fiduciary is anyone who acts on behalf of another, such as a Power of Attorney. A good fiduciary never forgets that the principal’s money does not belong to the fiduciary and goes to great lengths to keep the principal’s money separate from the fiduciary’s. Similarly, a good fiduciary makes medical decisions carefully and in keeping with the principal’s wishes, not based on the agent’s opinions and values.
“Powers of Attorney (POA): What You Need to Know”
There is perhaps no more difficult task one can perform than becoming responsible for another person’s assets and/or health care. Too often, people are unaware of what is expected of them and they make innocent mistakes that create problems for themselves and family members.
Please join us for an informative overview of how to properly use powers of attorney. The seminar will include a discussion on the importance of holding a POA, different types of POA’s, and the legal issues involving people who serve as an agent under a power of attorney. The session’s instructor is Certified Elder Law Attorney, William R. Blumer, from The Law Firm of Leisawitz Heller.
Various sessions, like the Power of Attorney information session, are available as part of our BE@Nite Series.
The next session is scheduled for March 8, 2018 – What You Need to Know about Powers of Attorney & Living Wills. Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center, Franciscan Rooms A &B. 6:30 p.m.
