About the Product

A power of attorney empowers a trusted individual to make decisions on behalf of someone who can no longer do so due to mental or physical incapacity. Powers of Attorney can cover financial, health, welfare, or both aspects.

The power of attorney registration involves formally registering the power of attorney with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG), ensuring its legal validity. The process includes completing the form, obtaining witness signatures, and submitting relevant documentation to the OPG.

The OPG conducts checks to confirm the power of attorney's legal validity and the grantor's mental competence during the creation of the power of attorney. Additional investigations may occur if concerns or objections arise before the registration decision.

Following registration, the appointed attorney can begin acting on behalf of the grantor. Maintaining up-to-date power of attorney registration and notifying the OPG of any changes are vital. This process provides peace of mind, ensuring that the grantor's wishes are respected in the event of incapacity.
