Georgia General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

The Georgia General (Financial) Power of Attorney grants another party (named the Agent) the legal ability to act on behalf of the creator of the form (the Principal) to take charge of matters concerning their finances. Once executed, the Agent will be granted special decision making powers to perform actions such as banking procedures, insurance premium payments, and retirement plan contributions. As this is a general type of Power of Attorney, it will become wholly invalid upon the Principal’s incapacity.
