Hawaii General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

The Hawaii General (Financial) Power of Attorney (POA) is a legally-binding document that outlines when and in which ways an individual (known as the Principal) desires an Agent to act in their stead to carry out one or more financial affairs. The Agent will need to exercise decision making powers to handle matters pertaining to the Principal’s banking, investments, retirement funds, and any other financial affairs that have been specified. As this is a general type of POA nature, the Agent must cease their duties immediately upon the Principal’s incapacity.
