Hawaii Power of Attorney Forms and Templates
Hawaii power of attorney allows for a person to make financial or medical decisions on someone else’s behalf. It is recommended that the person be a trusted individual as the Agent will be able to make any type of monetary decision. The health care decisions will only be made if the Principal cannot speak for themselves. For more information read the State law Chapter 551 Uniform Power of Attorney Act.
- General Durable (Financial) – Elect someone to have the unlimited financial power to make any monetary decision on your behalf. There is no limit to what your agent may do as long as it is to your benefit and all proceeds must go to you. It must be authorized in front of a notary public in order to be legal and may only be voided upon death or revocation.
