Free Printable General Power of Attorney Forms

General power of attorney allows an individual (the “Principal”) to select an individual (the “Agent”) to handle their financial affairs only. Unlike the durable power of attorney, the general does not allow the Agent to be able to make decisions on the Principal if he or she is not mentally capable (also known as incapacitated due to a coma, Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, etc).
