Instructions for Your Revocation of Power of Attorney

When you need to revoke a power of attorney, a revocation of power of attorney allows you to end any previous authority you may have designated, in one easy document.

Type of Power of Attorney

This revocation of power of attorney allows you to revoke two different types of power of attorney—durable or general—depending on your needs. A durable power of attorney is a power of attorney that gives your attorney-in-fact (a.k.a. your agent, proxy, or surrogate) the authority to act on your behalf after you become incapacitated and can no longer speak for yourself. A general power of attorney, also known as an ordinary power of attorney, is a power of attorney that ends when you become incapacitated. A general power of attorney is typically granted for a specific purpose or event.

Executing Your Revocation

Once the document has been completed, you should sign the revocation in the presence of two witnesses and a notary. The two witnesses should then sign the revocation confirming that they have witnessed your signature. Finally, the notary should then acknowledge the signatures in the place provided. Once you have a completed, signed, and notarized document, a copy should be provided to all attorneys-in-fact whose powers are being revoked. Copies should also be sent to any organization that knew about or acted upon the power of attorney document.

Note: You do not need to provide a reason to your former attorney-in-fact or any organization as to why you are revoking the power of attorney.

Please note that the language you see here changes depending on your answers to the document questionnaire.
