Idaho General (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

The provisions found in an Idaho General (Financial) Power of Attorney (POA) are much the same as an Idaho Durable Power of Attorney. Both of these documents formalize the process of a Principal delegating their decision making powers about financial affairs to another party (the Agent). There is, however, one fundamental point of differentiation—a general type of POA will expire upon the incapacitation of the Principal (the person who creates the document), whereas a durable type will not.
