Enduring power of attorney (EPA)

Sometimes, you will want someone else to be able to make decisions on your behalf about your property and finances or personal care and welfare.


What is an enduring power of attorney?

When an injury or illness means you’re unable to make decisions or manage your own affairs - or if managing your financial affairs is simply all too much - an attorney appointed through an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPA) can step in and do it for you. You can also establish an EPA when you simply want someone else to take responsibility on your behalf.

EPAs are as important as wills for protecting you and your family - they ensure that your care, wellbeing, and finances are taken care of by people you trust, or a trustee corporation like Public Trust, in the way that you want. Spouses, partners or next of kin aren’t automatically entitled to step in to manage a person’s finances if they’re incapable.
