Different Types of Power of Attorney

There are four main types of Power of Attorney, each of which has its own unique function and purpose. Additionally, there are many decisions the agent you appoint can make, including financial decisions and healthcare decisions, depending on the power you designated to the person you appoint.

Here are the four types of Financial Powers of Attorney:

  • General Power of Attorney: When you create this type of Power of Attorney, it is a more comprehensive arrangement that gives your attorney-in-fact many of the rights and powers you have. Your attorney-in-fact would be able to perform many acts on your behalf, including pay your bills, sign documents, and carry out other financial transactions.
  • Statutory Durable Power of Attorney: A durable Power of Attorney is more limited in scope than a general Power of Attorney. If you become incapacitated, the court may appoint a Guardian or Conservator and the Statutory Durable Power of Attorney will stay in effect until your death or until you are no longer incapacitated and choose to rescind it.
  • Limited Power of Attorney: This type of Power of Attorney gives an individual of your choosing the ability to act on your behalf for a limited purpose and will usually end at a specified time.
  • Springing Power of Attorney: a Durable Power of Attorney may be drafted as a Springing Power of Attorney, which will allow the attorney-in-fact to act on your behalf if ONLY if you become incapacitated. If you choose this type of Durable Power of Attorney, the definition of incapacity and the decision as to when to activate the Power of Attorney is essential.
