Rhode Island Power of Attorney Forms


The Rhode Island power of attorney forms are legal documents that assist in electing an individual, known as the ‘Agent’ or ‘Attorney in Fact,’ to make monetary and health care decisions on your behalf. One of the main benefits of this form is that it can be made durable, meaning it can remain in effect if you should become mentally incompetent. Incapacitation by advanced age, dementia or by an accident is common among senior citizens. Therefore, signing either the durable financial or health care power of attorney documents will guarantee that your future requests will be made even if you can no longer speak for yourself.
Under Rhode Island power of attorney law, all documents must be signed with at least two (2) witnesses or a notary public in order to become valid.
