Due to the effects of the cancer or its treatment, it may become more difficult for you to get out of the house. If this happens, it might be hard to do things like go to the bank or manage things like state benefits. Even though you can make your own financial decisions, it may be helpful to have someone else manage the practical things for you.
There may also come a time when making financial decisions becomes difficult. Or you might become unable to tell people about your decisions.
If this happens, you can arrange for someone else to make the decisions for you. This is done using a Power of Attorney.
Whichever option you choose, you should ask someone you can trust completely. You should check that they are happy to do it. If you’re not sure about what might be best for your individual situation, our financial guides can help. You can call them for free on 0808 808 00 00.
