that you can get a Power of Attorney prepared at a special discounted price?

We are all used to making decisions for ourselves. It’s what you have done all your days. But what happens if it becomes difficult or impossible for you to make your own choices through ill-health or after an accident. It’s a sad fact that 1 in 3 of us will suffer from dementia. Whatever your age it is important to take time now to grant Power of Attorney to someone you trust. Being prepared will give you and your family peace of mind. It’s like insurance but you only have to pay once.
Many people think that a family member will automatically be able to make decisions for them, whether a partner, spouse, son or daughter. But that’s not the case. Unless you have a Power of Attorney your family does not have the right to make decisions on your behalf. If you are unfortunately enough to be one of the 1 in 3 who develops dementia and you don’t have a Power of Attorney it’s a huge problem. Your family members may then have to go to Court to get the legal authority to act on your behalf which can be a nightmare.
So a Power of Attorney makes sense. By getting a Power of Attorney you choose someone who would be given the right to make specific decisions on your behalf if you need help or lose the ability to make decisions for yourself.
With a McClure Power of Attorney, it does not come into force until you say so. That way you keep control. You can change the Attorney if you want to. And at present McClure will prepare your Power of Attorney at a special price – for only £249. And we will donate £30 to charity. How good is that?

But don’t take our word for it. Watch our videos above or read below, to see what Martin Lewis of Money Saving Expert had to say.
“We talk about Wills, we don’t talk about Power of Attorneys.
1 in 3 people over 65 die with dementia. And yet we don’t consider what would happen to my family if I lost my faculties, if I was no longer able to look after my own finances I might not be able to pay for my own care. If you have to go to the Court of Protection it’s a nightmare. Just a quick quote on that one - “It’s a very long, drawn out and expensive process, I wish we had managed to get Power of Attorney instead when Dad was more capable”. And this is the point, a Power of Attorney is a document that says, you can set it up to say “When or if I lose my faculties you take over, not now. I have a Power of Attorney, I am 42, right and I have nothing in prospective coming but I do it so my money is not locked away so my family will still be fine if anything happened to me.”

It makes sense doesn't it?
