The Connecticut durable power of attorney form is a legal document through which a resident can appoint an attorney-in-fact to chart the course of their financial affairs and to attend to day-to-day matters with regard to financial management. The durable nature of the document provides the attorney-in-fact with the power of attorney even if the resident (called the principal) should become incapacitated. That said, the principal will be able to define the specified tasks the agent will have the authority to oversee as to not give them complete control following incapacitation.
