How do I designate someone as a power of attorney?

Sometimes, we all need help. One of the ways to establish a formal arrangement for another person to help with certain aspects of your life is through a Power of Attorney.

Granting a Power of Attorney is an important decision. A Power of Attorney can give another person power over your affairs, from relatively simple matters such as paying your bills to intensely personal and complicated matters such as your health care decisions.
