Power of Attorney is a legal appointment given by someone, referred to as "Principal", to another person to make decisions on the Principal's behalf. The appointed person is called the "Agent" or "Attorney-in-fact". The Principal is able to make decisions and the Agent has to follow the Principal's directions. If the Principal should become incapacitated and unable to make decisions on his or her own, a Durable Power of Attorney allows the Agent to continue making decisions that would benefit the Principal on the Principal's behalf.
The Power of Attorney or Durable Power of Attorney terminates upon the death of the Principal.
