Planning ahead checklist

This checklist will help you think about what to consider before planning ahead and what you may need to bring to an appointment to make your Power of Attorney.

  • Attorney – name of the person or trustee organisation you want to make property and financial decisions for you. This should be a person or trustee organisation you trust, who understands your wishes, has skills in managing finances, has no conflict of interest and will act in your best interests
  • Decide if you want your attorney to be able to make decisions if you lose capacity i.e. do you want to make an Enduring Power of Attorney?
  • Arrange to sign your Power of Attorney before a specially qualified witness and have your attorney accept the appointment
  • Bring your tax file number and identification to your appointment (100 points)
