USING THE LPA TO TRANSACT WITH THIRD PARTIES
The donee is able to transact on a donor’s behalf when the donor has been certified by a registered medical practitioner to have lost mental capacity, after the donor’s LPA registration.
The donee may bring the donor and approach any registered medical practitioner (not limited to the list of accredited medical practitioners by OPG). However, it is best for the donor to be assessed by his/her regular doctor who is familiar with his/her medical history, if he/she has one. The doctor may refer the donor to a specialist if necessary. The medical report template may be used by the medical practitioner to certify the donor’s loss of mental capacity.
When transacting with third parties (e.g. HDB, CPFB, Banks, hospitals), the donee will be expected to provide the registered LPA (softcopy, hardcopy, or Certified True Copy) and the medical report. For more details on the softcopy registered LPA, please refer to the guide.
