Connecticut Power of Attorney Forms legally allow a person to specify another person to act as an agent in the carrying out of certain specified business. These forms are often used in situations where the person appointing the agent (the “principal”) anticipates being unavailable either physically or mentally and wants to make sure that he or she has a trusted person to act in his or her stead. Because you are granting power to another person to transact your business in your best interest, it is vitally important that you trust the person you are appointing. In Connecticut, the power of attorney laws are currently located at C.G.S.A. P.A. 15-240.
