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.
Only one card is available on an account. However, if your account comes with a chequebook, you can order more than one chequebook for your attorneys.
Just so you know, the account holder’s cheque book is not cancelled automatically. so you'll need to let us know if you want to do this.
Current account statements can be sent to more than one address/attorney. However, savings accounts statements are sent only to the one address – the address chosen for future mailing.
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.
