Power of Attorney


Overview

A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document giving one person (the agent or the attorney) the power to act for or on behalf of another person (the principal). The agent can have broad legal authority or limited legal authority to make legal decisions pertaining to the principal's property, finances or medical care.

A general power of attorney arrangement is terminated when the principal becomes incapacitated, revokes the power of attorney or passes away.  

Durable Power of Attorney - The Durable Power of Attorney designates another person to act on the principal’s behalf and includes a durable clause that maintains the power of attorney after the principal becomes incapacitated.  

Special or Limited Power of Attorney - In Special or Limited Power of Attorney, the agent has specific powers limited to a certain area. An example is a power of attorney that grants the agent authority to sell a piece of real estate.
