A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document that allows you (the “principal”) to appoint any individual (the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) to manage your financial, medical, or other legal affairs.
Power of attorney laws vary by state. So, you need to download the power of attorney form specific to Connecticut.
In addition, there are many types of power of attorney. The form you need depends on what the POA is for and when the POA is effective. For example. If you wish for the agent to retain their powers even when you (the principal) become incapacitated, you’ll need a durable power of attorney.
