The Connecticut general power of attorney form permits a person residing in Connecticut to choose an agent to handle any type of financial decision on their behalf. If the person being representative (“Principal”) can no longer think for themselves because of a mental condition, the form becomes void. If the principal would like a document where the agent may be able to act to their benefit even under incapacitation, then the parties should fill in the Connecticut durable power of attorney document.
Signing Requirements – The document must be executed by the principal and witnessed by two (2) adult witnesses. The signature must also be acknowledged before a notary public (Sec. 1-350d).
