This guide was developed by the Victorian Office of the Public Advocate (OPA) on behalf of, and in partnership with, members of the Australian Guardianship and Administration Council (AGAC) including the Public Trustee and Guardian for the ACT.

The National Guide on Financial Enduring Power of Attorney2.48 MB can help you decide whether to make an Enduring Power of Attorney (EPOA) for your financial decisions.

Each Australian state and territory has its own laws about EPOAs. These laws differ, so this guide should be read with information from your state or territory about EPOAs for financial decisions. To check for changes to the law see information in your state or territory.

The project was funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department.
