- Power of Attorney – A power of attorney is a legal document that grants another person the legal authority to look after your financial affairs on your behalf. You can appoint an attorney in several ways, for example you can appoint someone to take care of your affairs while you are overseas or in case of a diminished mental capacity due to injury or illness;
