Connecticut Power of Attorney Law


Various forms for a power of attorney (POA) are recognized under the Connecticut Statutes. All of them allow you to delegate authority to someone to act in your place when you can’t attend to the matter personally. We’ll describe the differences among the various power of attorney forms below:

  • Durable power of attorney – This form will stay in force even if you later become incapacitated, such as becoming unconscious from an accident or illness or are suffering from dementia. In order to qualify as a durable form for power of attorney, it must state that it won’t be affected by the disability or incompetence of the principal (creator). Connecticut Statutes 45a-562
 
  • Springing power of attorney – This type doesn’t become effective until a specified date or other contingency occurs. For example, you might want it to take effect only in the event that you become disabled or incompetent. Connecticut Statutes require that your agent sign a written affidavit attesting to the occurrence of the specified contingency before the agent can use the authority granted in the document. Connecticut Statutes 1-56h
 
  • Statutory power of attorney – This document precisely follows statutory language set forth in the Connecticut Statutes. A list of powers granted to the agent is contained in the form, and you must draw a line through and initial any subject matter listed that you don’t wish to grant authority in to your agent. Connecticut Statutes 1-43

Some other things you should know about a POA in Connecticut include:

  • Co-agents – If you name more than one agent and don’t indicate whether they are allowed to act independently, the law will presume they must act jointly and agree on all decisions. Connecticut Statutes 1-43
 
  • Witnesses – Connecticut requires that two witnesses sign the document, and neither witness can also serve as the appointed agent. Connecticut Statutes 1-43
 
  • Signatures – The document should be signed by the principal and witnesses before a notary public, who then notarizes the form. Connecticut Statutes 1-43, Connecticut Statutes 1-56r

    General and Statutory Power of AttorneyWhat is a General Power of Attorney?A General Power of Attorney is a legal document which gives the person you choose (the agent) the power to manage your assets and financial affairs while you are alive. The document must be signed by you (the principal) while you have the required legal capacity to give your agent clear and concise instructions. The appointment may be for a fixed period and can be revoked by you at any time providing you still have the legal capacity to do so. A power of attorney ceases when you die. The executor named in your will then takes over the responsibilities of your estate.

    Living Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyLiving Will and Health Care Power of AttorneyA Health Care Power of Attorney is a legal document that allows an individual to designate another person to make medical decisions for him or her when he or she cannot make decisions for himself or herself. In other words it names someone who stands in your shoes and tells the doctors what to do or what not do for you.

    A Living Will is a document that allows a person to explain in writing which medical treatment he or she does or does not want during a terminal illness. A terminal illness is a fatal illness that leads ultimately to death. A Living Will takes effect only when the patient is incapacitated and can no longer express his or her wishes. The will states which medical treatments may be used and which may not be used to die naturally and without the patient�s life being artificially prolonged by various medical procedures. Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will.
