South Dakota Power of Attorney Forms


The South Dakota power of attorney forms allow you to elect a representative who can review and act on your behalf for any type of financial or medical-related decisions. Under South Dakota law, the durable power of attorney forms will continue to be effective if the person being represented should fall ill or can no longer think for themselves. For this reason, the durable forms are recommended for use by elderly individuals who may be showing signs of dementia, or for those heading into high-risk surgery. Having a durable power of attorney form in place ensures that the individual’s best interests are cared for regardless of their mental state.
