Real Life Stories

“My husband went on a fishing trip and left the family car with me and our girls. Both my husband and I forgot that the car insurance would expire while he was gone. The car insurance was registered in my husband’s name so I was unable to renew the insurance. I was stuck at home with a car in the driveway that I could not drive because it was not insured. Now that we have Powers of Attorney for each other, we have more control over our lives. I can act on behalf of my husband, if necessary.”

“My dad became ill and unable to make his own financial decisions. Our family needed access to funds to provide for the additional care my dad needed. Since my dad gave me the power to be his Attorney, I was able to access his RRSP to pay for his required care. Knowing my dad will be taken care of properly gave us peace of mind.”
