If I have a Will, why do I need to make a Power of Attorney for Property and Medical?

It is important for you to realize that your Will only take into effect after you pass away. Only Power of Attorneys for Property and Medical will protect you if you are not able to act on your own behalf due to mental or physical incapacity. Unfortunately, the executor you named in your Will is not able to help you as the executor’s role only comes into effect after you pass.
