This is Money

This is Money - Brexit, Brexit, Brexit
It's time once again for This Is Money, in partnership with NS&I. And we can't avoid it; with six days to go until the referendum, this is a Brexit special. Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs editor Lee Boyce join special guest host Sarah Pennells for a final run-down of the outlook for the UK economy if we vote to leave. What's the prognosis? Well, you'll just have to listen. (And be sure to check out Simon's column on This is Money this week, with his picks for the top Brexit reporting on both sides). We're also going to dip back in to the rolling BHS scandal of course, and hope for UK would-be homeowners who lost their savings in the Spanish property market. This Is Money is presented in partnership with NS&I. Georgie Frost will be back next week.

Your Money, Your Future: Ongoing Powers of Attorney
A survey by the government found that 45% of people over 45 knew nothing about a lasting power of attorney and, when they were told about what it was, over 60% said they weren't interested in setting one up. An ongoing power of attorney lets you manage someone else's money when they're unable to do so. What can you do if your elderly relative is struggling to manage their own money? What are the rules if you want to open an account for your child or grandchild? Sarah Pennells is joined by David Steele, Policy Manager of Financial Services at Age UK and George McNamara, Head of Policy at the Alzheimer's Society, to discuss these issues.
