Florida General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

The Florida General (Financial) Power of Attorney binds an individual (the Principal) and a party of their choosing (the Agent) into a formal agreement whereby the Agent will carry out financial tasks on behalf of the Principal. Examples of tasks the Agent may be required to complete include those related to banking, investments, and government benefits. The primary difference between a general and a durable POA is that the former will cease to be valid immediately upon the Principal’s incapacity, whereas the latter will continue unaffected.
