General Power of Attorney South Dakota Form – Adobe PDF
The South Dakota general power of attorney form permits a resident to choose another person and provide them with unrestricted access to their financial business affairs and assets. All decisions made by the representative must be to the benefit of the person being represented, and the agent may not compensate themselves for anything other than expenses accumulated through performing their fiduciary duties. Unlike a durable power of attorney, the general power of attorney does not remain valid if the person being represented should become in a state of mind where they can no longer think for themselves.
