Power of Attorney
This Power of Attorney agreement allows and authorizes another person, who will be known as your Agent, to make broad decisions concerning your finances and property on your behalf. You are known as the principal. Your Agent will also be able to make decisions for you in the event that you are incapacitated, and may assist in the decision as to whether or not you are able to act for yourself, which will be verified by an affidavit.
You should choose someone whom you know very well and trust to serve as your Agent. Unless you specifically make it clear, the Agent’s authority will generally continue either until you die, until you revoke this Power of Attorney, or until the Agent chooses not to maintain the authority and resigns or is otherwise unable to act for you.
Your Agent is entitled to be reimbursed for their expenses.
This contract is drafted so that one Agent may be appointed. If you would like to appoint more than one agent – in other words, you would like to appoint co-agents to act together – you may do so in any Special Instructions portion of this form.
If your Agent is not willing to act for you or is otherwise unable to act for you in any way, this Power of Attorney will automatically end unless you have designated a secondary successor agent (or more than one).
