Understanding Different POA Types in South Carolina

In South Carolina, various types of Power of Attorney (POA) can be utilized to delegate authority to an agent for different purposes.

  • General Power of Attorney: Grants broad authority to an agent to make financial, legal, and business decisions on your behalf. However, it becomes invalid if you become incapacitated.

  • Durable Power of Attorney: Similar to a general POA but remains effective even if you become incapacitated, making it valuable for long-term planning.

  • Limited (Special) Power of Attorney: Provides limited, specific powers for particular tasks or within a defined timeframe, such as selling property or handling a specific financial transaction.

  • Healthcare Power of Attorney: Also known as a Medical POA, it allows your agent to make medical decisions on your behalf if you're unable to do so.

  • Springing Power of Attorney: Becomes effective only upon the occurrence of a specified event, often your incapacity.

  • Financial Power of Attorney: Focuses solely on financial and business decisions, allowing your agent to handle tasks like paying bills, managing investments, or conducting real estate transactions.

Each type of POA serves specific purposes, and the choice depends on your needs and circumstances. Consulting with an experienced Summerville power of attorney lawyer can help you determine which type of POA will work best.
