Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts,"
If I want my son to be able to manage my financial accounts while I am undergoing treatments, is it best to put him as a joint owner of the accounts? Is there a temporary way to do that?

There could also be tax issues for your son if he's on the account, as opposed to being an agent in a power of attorney.
