Alaska Durable Power of Attorney Form
An Alaska Durable Power of Attorney (POA) is a legal form that grants an individual the responsibility of managing a person’s business, personal finances, and/or estate transactions. The “principal” creates the document while the “agent” assumes power on their behalf. “Durable” means that the form does not terminate if the principal becomes incapacitated (i.e., cannot make decisions or function independently). The principal must decide whether the form becomes active immediately after signing, incapacitation, or another date of their choosing.
