Illinois Power of Attorney Forms


Illinois Power of Attorney that lets an Illinois resident complete transferring power to another person, the “agent”, allowing the agent to make decisions or act on the resident’s behalf. The power transferred can be general or specific (limited), enabling the agent (also referred to as the attorney-in-fact) to generally oversee the management of finances or healthcare, or to simply complete one task. If the power of attorney is durable, the authority will sustain the incapacitation of the principal, meaning that even if the individual for whom the power of attorney was created becomes sick and unable to make decisions, the agent will still be able to perform on his or her behalf.
