Last year I did a document set for a friend’s son who was going to be living abroad for a couple of years. There was a power of attorney and health care documents. There was no occasion to use the documents for the first year but recently, the son had his ATM card chewed up and his parents were able to use the power of attorney to get him a new card. Then, when taxes were due, they realized that their son had neglected to get some important tax documents sent on from his work. They were able to use the power of attorney to request and receive the tax documents.
