Iowa Power of Attorney Law

  Iowa statutes give you the ability to create a power of attorney form (POA) that names an agent who’s authorized to act in your place when you’re unable to act in your own behalf. You are called the principal or grantor. You may have many reasons for delegating power to someone else to handle your personal or business affairs. A power of attorney can be a useful tool when you’re out of town, in military service, incarcerated, hospitalized, physically disabled, mentally incompetent, or simply find it more convenient or efficient to have the matter handled by another. We’ll discuss some of the key points you should understand about making this document below:

  • Nondurable vs. durable power of attorney – When you sign a POA, you must be legally competent. This means that you’re signing the form or instructing another person to sign your name in your presence with understanding of the meaning and legal consequences of the document and the terms it contains.

If you later become physically or mentally incapacitated, the authority granted to your agent in a nondurable POA will be cancelled. However, this authority won’t be cancelled upon your disability or incapacity if the form is a durable one. In order to qualify as a durable form, the document must contain language stating that it’s intended to remain effective despite your disability. You may do this by stating that it won’t be affected by your disability, or that the agent’s authority only takes effect upon your disability.

In the latter case, when the document takes effect at a point in time after you sign it, it’s referred to as a springing power of attorney. Otherwise, the agent’s authority is effective as soon as the document is signed. You can also create a springing POA by specifying a certain date or contingency that will cause it to take effect. Iowa Statutes Section 633B.1

  • Revocation and termination – Your death will void a power of attorney form. The form will also terminate upon your physical or mental incapacity if it’s a nondurable form. You may revoke the form at any time by giving written notice of its revocation to your agent. You should also provide a copy of the notice of revocation to any person or entity that has been dealing with your agent in reliance on the document. Any actions taking without actual notice of your death or revocation of the agent’s authority will be legally binding. Iowa Statutes Section 633B.1, Iowa Statutes Section 633B.2

    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.
