durable power of attorney (DER-uh-bul…uh-TER-nee)

A type of power of attorney. A power of attorney is a legal document that gives one person (such
as a relative, lawyer, or friend) the authority to make legal, medical, or financial decisions for
another person. It may go into effect right away, or when that person is no longer able to make
decisions for himself or herself. A durable power of attorney remains in effect until the person
who grants it dies or cancels it. It does not need to be renewed
