Lasting Power of Attorney Specialists

Do you need a Lasting
Power of Attorney?

If you’ve made a will, you might think you have everything covered. It’s a sad reality that advancing age, illness or an accident may mean that you need some extra help while you’re still here. Put simply, a Lasting Power of Attorney (or LPA) allows you to choose someone to look after your affairs when you can’t.
You’re in control

Your LPA lets you decide what will happen if you aren’t able to manage your finances or make decisions for yourself. When you’ve got an LPA in place your representatives can make sure that your bills still get paid or that you can get the care you need, when you need it. The good news is there’s only one form to complete to put everything in place.

There are different types

A finance LPA allows your attorney to manage your finances when you can’t, from paying your gas bill on time to more complex decisions about your savings and investments.

A health and welfare LPA lets your representatives make decisions about your care, based on what you’d choose for yourself if you could. That can include anything from medical care to where you live.
We’ll make sure you have all the information you need to decide what you want and how each type works.

You choose the right attorneys for you

When you create an LPA, you choose who you want to make decisions for you. This doesn’t have to be a family member. It can be anyone who knows you well and that you trust to make decisions with your best interests at heart.

You can have one set of attorneys for financial decisions and another for health and welfare. It means that you can choose someone with the right expertise for each job.

If you have difficult decisions to make, we’ll support you through it.

You can relax knowing everything’s covered

You might think that your family will be able to make decisions for you without an LPA, but unfortunately, they can’t. Even a joint account could be suspended. Banking and Building Society code of practice mean that your accounts can be suspended to protect your interests if you are ill or classified as a vulnerable client for any reason. When you have an LPA that can’t happen. The bills will still be paid and your loved ones can concentrate on looking after you.
