The Ohio Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney is generally considered the most common type of POA executed. It allows the primary party to assign various financial matters to another person (known as the “agent” or “attorney-in-fact”) so that they may be carried out in their name. What separates this document from some of the other POA forms is the fact that it continues to persist past the point of the principal’s incapacity. To correctly implement this instrument, the grantor will have to list their agent’s personal details within the form, initial each authority that they wish to bestow, and endorse it as requested by the state’s law (either in the presence of two (2) witnesses or a notarial figure).


Statute § 1337.24

Definition – “Durable,” with respect to a power of attorney, means not terminated by the principal’s incapacity (§ 1337.22(B)).

Signing Requirements – Acknowledgment of Notary Public (§ 1337.25)
