Indiana Limited (Special) Power of Attorney Form

The Indiana limited (special) power of attorney form is a document that is used to transfer power to the Attorney-in-Fact so they can act on behalf of the Principal in the case that they become incapacitated. The difference between limited power of attorney and general power of attorney is in the scope of the authority bestowed on the Agent (Attorney-in-Fact); a limited (special) POA allows the Principal to specify which tasks the Agent has the ability to undertake.

In the State of Indiana, it is required that this document be signed by the principal in the presence of a Notary Public OR two witnesses (IC 30-5-4-1).
