# Pennsylvania Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

Once a Pennsylvania Revocation of Power of Attorney is completed and provided to the respective Agent it serves as notice of the Principal’s decision to revoke a given Power of Attorney. These actions in turn meet the provisions in state law regarding Power of Attorney revocations. Specifically, § 5605 states that “Power of attorney not revoked until notice.” To be clear, this means that the Principal must both a) complete this revocation form b) furnish a copy to their Agent/s. If they do not complete the latter part, the Agent will lawfully be able to continue exercising any powers set forth by the Power of Attorney the Principal wishes to revoke.
