Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney in Scotland is a legal document. It lets someone act on your behalf. It can cover financial or welfare issues, or both.
Without a Power of Attorney, those who want to help must apply to the courts to act on your behalf, which is time-consuming, expensive, and restrictive. It may also require insurance policies, reports to the Office of the Public Guardian, and recordkeeping.
A Power of Attorney simplifies the process and lets you decide who can act for you, what powers they'll have, and when.
Getting a Power of Attorney in place is easy and lets you make important decisions while you're healthy and gives you peace of mind.
