Power of Attorney

What is a Durable Power of Attorney?

In Washington, you can sign a durable power of attorney to appoint someone to handle your financial and health care matters if you become unable to manage. A power of attorney is given broad powers, including the power to:

  • Manage and transfer assets
  • Deal with the IRS
  • Deal with creditors
  • Talk with medical personnel

A Durable power of attorney takes effect when signed, lasts throughout any disability you may have, and is extinguished when you die.
