Mississippi Power of Attorney Law

A power of attorney is a powerful legal tool that allows you, the principal, to appoint an agent, also called an attorney in fact, to handle your affairs when it’s desired or necessary. Title 87 of the Mississippi Code of 1972 contains the laws governing a power of attorney form (POA). We’ll discuss some of the important provisions of these laws below:

  • Durable power of attorney – Your power of attorney must be durable, rather than durable, if you don’t want it to automatically terminate upon your future physical or mental incapacity. For example, if you are unconscious or heavily sedated in the hospital, or develop dementia from aging, your form must be the durable type to not be cancelled and continue to allow an agent to act on your behalf. In order to qualify as a durable POA, it must contain statements showing your intent that it can be used despite your future disability or incapacity, and, unless it states a time of termination, notwithstanding the lapse of time since the signing of the document. § 87-3-105

  • General power of attorney – You can give your agent broad authority in a wide range of subject matters through a general POA. Only a very trusted person should be named as the agent in this type of form. You can also grant the agent narrower authority to handle only certain matters by creating a limited or special power of attorney.

  • Revocation - You may revoke the form and the authority of your agent any time you wish to. You should sign a written revocation form and give a copy to your agent and all the individuals and business entities who’ve been dealing with your agent by relying on the document. Until these people and entities have actual knowledge of the revocation, any acts taken by your agent under the POA will be upheld as valid. § 87-3-111

  • Termination – There are various situations that will cause the form to terminate:

    1. You state a date of termination in the form.
    2. You die and those acting under the form get actual notice of your death.
    3. You created a nondurable form and later become incapacitated.
    4. The express purpose of the document has been accomplished.
    5. The agent’s authority is terminated and no successor agent was named.

Your agent’s authority can terminate in various ways:

  1. The agent resigns or declines to act.
  2. Your agents dies or becomes incapacitated.
  3. You or a court removes or disqualifies your agent.
  4. The agent cannot be located or is otherwise unavailable to act.§ 87-3-111

    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.
