Connecticut General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form
The Connecticut General Statutory (Financial) Power of Attorney (POA) grants an Agent the necessary permission and subsequent decision making powers to oversee the Principal’s finances. It is critical that the POA expressly provides that it will be terminated upon the incapacity of the Principal—as this form does—as otherwise, the state law § 1-350c dictates that its terms will be considered durable (i.e. continue in the event of the Principal’s incapacity).
