Alaska Durable Power of Attorney Form


The Alaska Durable Power of Attorney is a form used to grant an individual with the responsibility of managing the Principal’s business, personal finances, or estate transactions. The durable nature of this document ensures it will not terminate in the case the Principal is determined to be incapacitated. Sections five (5) through seven (7) of the document allow the Principal to specify whether the document becomes active immediately after signatures are recorded, after incapacitation occurs, or after another date of their choosing.
