Updated September 27, 2022

A Connecticut power of attorney legally allows a person to specify another person to act as an agent in carrying out 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.
