The Nebraska general power of attorney form can be used by an individual (principal) who plans on handing over their financial affairs to another person without the condition of durability. This means that, unlike a durable power of attorney, the document becomes void should the principal become incapacitated. The reasoning behind this type of form is that the principal doesn’t have to worry about someone making decisions against their wishes if they are unable to speak and/or act for themselves. Still, the appointed attorney-in-fact should be someone trustworthy; a spouse, relative, friend, or qualified professional.
