This automated process follows the format of the Enduring Power of Attorney form prescribed by the government of the Australian Capital Territory.
An Enduring Power of Attorney is not cancelled if the principal loses capacity.
An Enduring Power of Attorney can be used to appoint attorneys as decision makers for property matters, personal care matters, health care matters and/or medical research matters.
It can also be used to authorise attorneys in respect of refusal or withdrawal of medical treatment.
The principal can:
1️⃣ Appoint up to five eligible attorneys and up to five eligible substitute attorneys;
2️⃣ Choose for the enduring power of attorney to be made in contemplation of marriage, civil union or civil partnership;
3️⃣ Specify conditions and limitations on the attorneys’ authority;
4️⃣ Sign personally or direct another person to sign;
5️⃣ Details for prescribed witnesses can be inserted in the form if known; and
6️⃣ Choose when the power to make decisions for property matters starts – i.e.: immediately; when the principal loses capacity; or from a specified time, circumstance or occasion.
If you are a member of a Self-Managed Super Fund (SMSF) and proceed to and lose your legal decision making capacity you will encounter expensive and complex legal issues if you don't have an EPOA already in place.
The Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (Cth) (SISA) allows an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) to act on behalf of a member.
