[00:27] This week’s topic focuses on Continuing Power of Attorney for Property, a legal document in which you may give someone else the legal authority to make decisions about your financial affairs for you. The person who you appoint is called "the attorney" and does not have to be a lawyer.

[00:44] The power of attorney is called “continuing” because it can be enacted whether you are mentally capable or not of making your own financial decisions. You may decide the effective date of the continuing power of attorney of property. It may be immediately or when you become incapable.

[01:01] Appointing your own attorney helps to ensure that your financials are taken care of. It may be one or more trusted person(s) who understands you and will honour your intentions.
