Importance of a special power of attorney

If you family is on the waiting list for government housing when a Service Member deploys, please notify the HSC before deployment. If the Service Members give their spouse power of attorney and provide a copy to the HSC before deployment, then a spouse may be able to accept and move into government housing. Providing Special Power of Attorney to a spouse, parent, or trusted friend can help ensure he/she can address whatever needs to be done on a Service Members behalf while away. For more information, visit your legal assistance office or create your own power of attorney online through JAG.
