A New York Power of Attorney is a legal document where one party (the Principal) authorizes another party (the Agent or the Attorney-in-fact) to act on his or her behalf during an absence.
This authority can specifically include or exclude several areas of interest, including matters of physical property, real estate, banking, insurance, tax matters, etc.
Traditionally, this authority ends when you become medically
incapacitated. However, you have the option to make the Power of
Attorney (1) "Durable" which means it will remain effective from the
time of signing the document and if you become medically
incapacitated; or (2) "Springing" which means it will only be
effective upon you becoming medically incapacitated.
You can elect which choice to make. A typical use of a Power of Attorney is to handle your affairs while you are out of the country, or to designate someone to manage your affairs if you get sick.
