Oregon Power of Attorney Forms

Oregon Power of Attorney Forms can be used by a competent individual over the age of eighteen (18) years to appoint a trusted representative to handle certain financial, medical, or other personal affairs. This representative, also known as an attorney-in-fact, is bound by the terms of the document and must perform the duties mentioned therein with the principal’s best interests in mind. Each form will grant the attorney-in-fact different powers and will also have different conditions of termination. In some cases, a principal may wish to execute a document that allows an attorney-in-fact to gain (or maintain) control over financial or medical decisions (durable and medical POA, respectively) should they become disabled or incapacitated in any way. In other cases, the attorney-in-fact’s powers may terminate as soon as the principal is incapacitated (general POA) or upon the document’s termination date (limited).
