Connecticut Statutory Durable Power of Attorney Form

The Connecticut Statutory Durable Power of Attorney is an estate planning document used for nominating a person with the power to make financial (and estate) related decisions on another’s behalf. The document, being the official statutory form of Connecticut, is completely compliant with the state’s POA laws.

It is important to understand that the form type is durable. This means the POA will continue to remain in effect after the Principal becomes incapacitated (a state in which they are unable to make their own decisions). A general POA should be used if the Principal wishes to have the form terminate in the event of their incapacitation.
