New Hampshire Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form
The New Hampshire Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney will delegate, upon its execution, decision making powers from an individual to a party they entrust to manage their financial affairs in an efficient and effective manner. The individual—the Principal of the Power of Attorney—can request that the party—their Agent—take charge of numerous tasks on their behalf, or just the one. These tasks may involve accessing the Principal’s bank accounts, making payments to service providers, or organizing investments for the Principal’s benefit. As the Power of Attorney is durable, the powers will continue even if the Principal enters into a state of incapacity.
