									Broad Power of Attorney
This Broad Power of Attorney is between a principal and an agent that grants the agent
authority to act on behalf of the principal. This power of attorney grants broad powers.
The agent will be allowed to perform any act on the principal’s behalf that the principal is
allowed to perform themselves. In addition, the principal must specify a date when this
power of attorney will expire. This power of attorney is ideal for individuals that want to
grant or receive broad powers.
                            BROAD POWER OF ATTORNEY

I, _______________ [NAME OF PERSON GIVING THE POWER OF ATTORNEY] of
______________ [PROVIDE FULL ADDRESS], hereby appoint __________ [NAME OF
PERSON RECEIVING THE POWER] of ____________________ [PROVIDE FULL
ADDRESS] as my attorney in fact to act in my capacity to do every act that I may legally do
through an attorney in fact. This power shall be in full force and effect, starting on
_____________, 201___ [PROVIDE STATE GRANTOR WISHES THE POWER OF
ATTORNEY TO BE GIVEN TO THE OTHER PERSON], the date below written and shall
remain in full force and effect until __________, 20___ [PROVIDE DATE POWER WILL
END], or unless specifically extended or rescinded earlier by either party.

{Instruction and caution: Grantor should carefully consider the benefits and drawbacks of
providing an ending date that is near in the future, or, is far off in the future. If a grantor
trusts the person receiving the power, then setting an end date years, or decades in the future,
can protect the grantor in case of physical or mental disability. However, if grantor gives the
power to someone who may abuse the power, then setting an earlier end-date can minimize the
problems. Of course, unless the grantor is declared incompetent or is otherwise incapacitated,
grantor can always shorten a long-term power, or, can extend a short-term power. Each
person's situation is different, and therefore, there is no one correct answer to this difficult
issue.}
