What Powers Of Attorney Should You Include In Your Estate Plan?

A power of attorney can be a dangerous document if it gets in the wrong hands at an inopportune time. Many people consider it a good idea to give a close family member or friend the ability to manage health care decisions and/or personal property in case of incapacitation, incarceration or any unforeseen crisis.
