Vermont Durable (Financial) Power of Attorney Form

Updated October 11, 2023

A Vermont durable power of attorney form is a legal document that allows a person (“principal”) to appoint someone else (“agent”) to stand in their place and handle their business affairs. This is only valid for financial-related decisions and may not be used for health care or guardianship representation. The term “durable” means the form lasts the lifetime of the principal unless terminated by the principal. After signing, the agent may begin acting and representing the principal in financial transactions.
