Minnesota General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

A Minnesota General (Financial) Power of Attorney is a legal document of a non-durable nature, meaning that it will expire immediately upon the Principal’s incapacity. Up until this point (that is, if it eventuates), an Agent will have the legal powers to act on the Principal’s behalf to perform financial tasks. These tasks may consist of such acts as making deposits and payments, organizing the Principal’s retirement funds, and organizing meetings with representatives of relevant financial institutions.
