Massachusetts General (Financial) Power of Attorney

A Massachusetts general power of attorney allows a person ("principal") to appoint someone else ("agent") to manage their financial affairs. This is common for a principal who trusts their agent to make decisions on their behalf while they may be in another location or not interested in handling the day-to-day tasks of a business.
