Alaska General Financial Power of Attorney Form

The Alaska general financial power of attorney form is a document which allows an attorney in fact/agent the authority to execute certain transactions without specifications of any particular property and generally without any power limitation. This document in the state of Alaska will allow an agent to completely take over the property of the principal. If this is not the intention of the principal, this should be discussed with an attorney or someone who is knowledgeable about these documents. The principal should be aware that they may revoke this document at any time as long as they are competent to do so, in writing or by execution of an updated power of attorney document. This particular form only applies to all property and monetary funds but does not include healthcare decisions by the agent for the principal.
