A Pennsylvania Limited Power of Attorney Form is designed to give the Attorney-in-Fact a single, fixed power to manage the Principal’s finances. This is typically used when the Principal is both legally and mentally capable of managing the power granted to the Attorney-in-Fact, but wishes to delegate it or gain assistance managing it.
While this agreement is generally considered one of the safest Power of Attorney agreements, it can also be one of the most restrictive. If the Attorney-in-Fact needs to take any action not covered they will be unable to unless they sign a new agreement with the Principal. The Principal should also be aware that Pennsylvania is one of the few states that does not require witnesses when signing a Power of Attorney agreement.
