The Ohio General (Financial) Power of Attorney is an excellent option for individuals who need an agent to operate on their behalf pertaining to financial matters, such as real estate transactions, tax affairs, investment activities, and so on. What makes this document unique is that it allows its executor to mandate that it expires upon the point of their incapacity. In order to carry out a valid arrangement, the conveyor of authority will have to record the name of their agent, stipulate which powers will be at their agent’s disposal, and provide confirmation by signing the instrument as necessary.


Statute – A power of attorney terminates when the principal becomes incapacitated if the power of attorney is not durable (§ 1337.30(A)(2)).
