Arkansas Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

An Arkansas Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney may be executed by any individual who consents to an arrangement whereby an Agent will make decisions and act with respect to their finances whether or not they capable of doing so themselves. As state law (§ 28-68-301) stipulates, the Agent’s authority will endure until the Principal’s death. Should the Principal not agree to such terms, they are legally entitled to specify terms to the contrary (therein changing the POA from a durable to a general type).
