The Georgia Power of Attorney statute currently lacks specific language as to the fiduciary duties of the agent. Recently, Georgia State Representative Chuck Efstration introduced HB 221, which provides clearer language on legal rights of the person being represented, and protections for banks and third parties who accept the representation that there is a valid Power of Attorney in good faith. This proposed legislation will allow law enforcement and prosecutors further clarity for when someone is being financially exploited, which would help protect vulnerable adults and provide their caregivers with the tools they need to make important financial decisions. On Thursday, February 16 at 7:05pm, join our live discussion about important work taking place which will impact Power of Attorney law in Georgia.
