You can specify what your attorney can do on your accounts, and which accounts they have access to.
Your attorney can never run up an overdraft or get you into any debt. Here's what they can do:
Savings and current accounts
You can specify what your attorney can do on your savings or current accounts, and which accounts they have access to. They can write cheques and withdraw cash, use a debit card and make payments and transfers. They can also close accounts on your behalf.
When you have an attorney on your account, we can only give one of you the passbook, chequebook or debit card (if your account comes with these), so you need to decide which one of you will have them. We’ll only send your statements to one address.
Your attorney can make payments to your credit card and help to manage it on your behalf but they can’t use your credit card to buy anything.
Your attorney can make payments to your mortgage and help to manage it on your behalf, but they can’t borrow more money.
Remember, whenever your attorney comes into the branch, they must bring proof of ID.
