General (Financial) Power of Attorney Forms | PDF Templates

General power of attorney allows an individual to select someone else to handle financial actions on their behalf. The actions that may be conducted by the selected individual, also known as an “Agent” or “Attorney-in-Fact”, can be isolated to one or a few things or it may be a broad power to act on anything financially related to the principal.

Durable Power of Attorney – Unlike the durable form, the general does not have powers that remain in effect if the principal becomes incapacitated, or, not able to think rationally due to a health condition. Therefore, if the principal would like to have these powers presented, they should use the durable version.
