The Maryland General Power of Attorney Form is used to give the Agent broad power to act on behalf of the Principal in financial matters such as investing or managing bank accounts. Note that, in Maryland like most states, this cannot give the Agent non-financial powers (such as childcare or medical, as all other Power of Attorney forms are governed separately and would require separate forms.

Under Maryland state law, in order for a Power of Attorney Agreement to be valid, it must be witnessed by at least two (2) adults unrelated to either the Principal or the Agent and it must be ratified by the Principal in the presence of a Notary. The Principal should be very careful about who they name as their Agent in this agreement, as it grants a wide variety of powers to the Agent.
