An Iowa power of attorney lets an individual (“principal”) delegate financial, medical, or other related matters to someone else (the “agent”) while they are alive. The most common purpose is to prepare for a time when the principal can no longer handle their financial or medical responsibilities themselves. Therefore, a power of attorney allows them to select a trusted individual to carry out actions on their behalf and in their best interest.


Durable (Statutory) Power of Attorney – Allows a person to appoint someone to manage your affairs, even in the event you become incapable of managing your own affairs. Although some POAs become void upon the incapacity of the principal, a “durable” POA continues despite incapacity.

General (Financial) Power of Attorney – This form is similar to the durable POA, in that it conveys power to financially manage another’s estate, but it becomes void if the principal is adjudged incompetent.
