General Power of Attorney South Dakota Form – Adobe PDF
The general power of attorney form for South Dakota permits a resident to choose another person and assign them to have 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 other than for expenses accumulated through performing their fiduciary duties.
Unlike durable power of attorney, the general does not remain valid if the person being represented should become in a state of mind where they can no longer think for themselves. In order to complete, this form must be signed in the presence of a notary public and receive their stamp, seal, and acknowledgment.
