The Indiana general power of attorney form grants a third party the authority to act on the principal’s behalf for any type of financial decision within the State. The difference between this designation and the durable power of attorney is that this document becomes void if the principal should become incapacitated. The form does not need to be signed in front of any witnesses to be legal. However, it is highly recommended to have at least two (2) witnesses subscribe to the document.
Signing Requirements (§ 30-5-4-1) – Must be signed by the principal or their representative in the presence of a notary public (who must sign and stamp the document).
