Minnesota Power of Attorney Law

Minnesota Statutes allow you to create power of attorney form (POA) to appoint an agent to have authority to act for you in the subject matters you choose. This can be very convenient when you’re too busy, absent, or otherwise unavailable to take care of something yourself. It can also be a valuable estate planning tool when an unfortunate event occurs, like an accident or illness. By having an agent who can make sure your personal and business affairs continue without interruption, you can avoid the cumbersome and expensive court procedures for having a guardian appointed.

Let’s take a look at some of the important basics you should know about the law in your state:

  • Requirements – Your power of attorney form must be signed and dated while you are a competent adult. You must be able to understand the meaning and consequences of the document in order to be considered legally competent. If you have another person sign your name, or can only mark rather than sign the document, it must be done in front of a notary public and notarized. Minnesota Statutes Section 523.01

  • Durable power of attorney – A durable POA won’t be voided if you become mentally incompetent or physically incapacitated the way a nondurable form will. However, to create a durable document, it must contain specific wording that shows your intent to have it remain in effect despite your later incompetence or incapacity. It is also possible to include an expiration date in the document. Minnesota Statutes Section 523.07, Minnesota Statutes Section 523.075

  • Termination - A durable POA will terminate on your death, the date of termination specified in the power of attorney, or, upon the filing of proceedings for dissolution, separation, or annulment of your marriage if your spouse is appointed as the agent, whichever occurs first.. A nondurable POA will terminate in the same manner, as well as upon your disability or incompetency. Minnesota Statutes Section 523.08, Minnesota Statutes Section 523.09

  • Revocation – You can revoke the document and the agent’s authority any time you wish to. You must do so in a written and signed revocation form. You should give a copy to your agent and anyone who’s been dealing with your agent. Minnesota Statutes Section 523.11

    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.
