Just Compare Lasting Power of Attorney Service

What is a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA)?
An LPA is a legal document that lets you to choose one or more people to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf, when you are unable to make them yourself. This gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and cannot make your own decisions (you ‘lack mental capacity’).

Setting up an LPA is a sensible step to ensure that you and your family have peace of mind and protection in the future.

Why do I need an LPA?
You can decide in advance how future choices should be made for you and who should make them. You can appoint someone that you trust to look after your finances and you can specify what decisions they can make. If you appoint more than one, you must decide whether they’ll make decisions separately or together.

An LPA can also offer added peace of mind for families who have an equity release plan, as you can ensure your loved ones will still be able to access any cash reserve that can be withdrawn in the future.

It is important to arrange your LPA now
You can only set up an LPA whilst you retain the mental capacity to do so. In other words, by the time you actually need one due to an accident, illness or because you are mentally unable, it will usually be too late.

If you don't have an LPA in place, your loved ones might not be able to automatically look after your financial affairs or make decisions about your healthcare and the Court may have to appoint someone to manage your finances. This can be a lengthy, stressful and costly process for your family.

Just Compare can help you arrange an LPA when the time is right.

When considering an LPA, there are two different types available to you:

1, Property & Financial Affairs
This allows you to nominate someone to make decisions about the running of your money and property (such as managing your bank/building society, paying bills, collecting benefits or pension, selling your home).

2, Health & Welfare
This allows you to nominate someone to make decisions about the healthcare you may need in the future (such as your daily routine, medical care, care homes, life-sustaining treatment).
