Nebraska Power of Attorney Law

A Nebraska power of attorney form (POA) is an easy way to take care of estate planning needs and make your life easier. By filling out this simple form, you, the principal, name someone as your agent (also called an attorney in fact), and allow him or her the authority to act in your place as you describe. By doing so, you can avoid a lengthy and expensive guardianship process if youíre in an accident or become too ill or mentally incompetent to manage your affairs. You can also use this form to simply delegate matters to someone when youíre not available, such as being out of town, in the military, too busy, or incarcerated.

A power of attorney is governed by the rules and requirements found in Title 30 of the Nebraska Revised Statutes. Letís take a look at some of the important things covered under these laws that you should be familiar with:

  • Durable power of attorney Ė Creating a durable POA means that it wonít terminate upon your future incapacity, such as becoming physically disabled or mentally incompetent due to an accident, illness, or advanced age. In Nebraska, the law assumes your form is durable, unless you specifically include a statement that you want it to terminate upon your future incapacity. 30-4004

  • Signature Ė You must sign the document in front of a notary public and have it notarized. If youíre unable to sign, you can instruct another person to sign your name in your presence. 30-4005

  • When effective Ė The form and your agentís authority will be effective as soon as the form is signed and notarized. However, you can include terms for it to take effect later, upon a stated date or event. A POA that isnít in effect until a later time or contingency occurs in called a springing power of attorney. If you state that it only takes effect when you become incapacitated, but you donít name a person to make a determination that youíre incapacitated, the law requires a physician, psychologist, government official, or court to make a written determination or record of your incapacity. 30-4009

  • Termination Ė You can revoke your POA at any time. Because revocation isnít effective until the agent or those dealing with the agent have actual notice of the revocation, you should give each of them a copy of your written revocation form. Your form will automatically terminate on:

  1. Your death
  2. Your incapacity, if you created a nondurable form
  3. The death, resignation, or incapacity of your agent, if no successor was named
  4. The purpose of the form has been achieved
  5. The terms or conditions in the document for termination have occurred. 30-4009

    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 patientÔŅĹs 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.
