A financial power of attorney or durable power of attorney allows a person to designate another to handle the person’s financial affairs and other matters in the event the person becomes mentally incapacitated.
In California, a financial power of attorney is separate and distinct from a healthcare power of attorney. A person could designate the same individual to serve as both the financial and healthcare power of attorney, but appropriate, separate documents need to be prepared for both.
