The most common variants available in Alaska include the following examples:

  • Durable: Durable (Statutory) Power of Attorney documents are invaluable tools for individuals planning how their estate will be managed in their old age, or in the event of sudden illness or disability. They allow the Agent to act for the Principal even if they become incapacitated. This type of form must be signed in the presence of a notary public, as specified by Alaska state law. The Statutory form can also be found in Sec.13-26-645 of the Alaska statutes.

  • Limited: A Limited Power of Attorney allows a Principal to grant time-limited powers to an Agent. This is usually to allow the Agent to complete a one-off task such as signing a contract.
  • Medical: Medical Power of Attorney is a durable form of POA that allows a Principal to appoint a person to make medical decisions for them if they become incapacitated
  • Real Estate: Real Estate POAs are specially tailored documents that let Principals grant powers to an Agent for the purposes of managing real estate.
  • DMV: A DMV POA is a kind of Vehicle Power of Attorney that gives an Agent the authority to transfer ownership of a car or motorbike belonging to the Principal and to manage other issues related to cars and other motor vehicles.
  • Minor Child Power of Attorney: This variety of Power of Attorney allows a Principal to appoint an Agent to take on their legal parental rights for a limited period of time. This could be for work reasons, deployment in the military, or due to an illness.
  • Tax: A Tax Power of Attorney form enables you to grant authority to an agent to represent you before Alaska’s tax office.

What Are Some Uses of a Power of Attorney?

AnAlaska Power of Attorney is an important legal document that allows you to appoint a trusted individual to act on behalf of you to carry out important activities. Once signed, these legal forms can be used for a number of different purposes depending on their type and purpose.

These responsibilities include:

  • Managing your financial affairs
  • Making medical decisions for you if you are incapacitated
  • Handling activities for you such as buying or selling property

How to Sign as a Power of Attorney?

Once an AK Power of Attorney is signed and notarized, it can be used by the Agent to carry out duties for the Principal. In order to prove they have the authority to act for the Principal, the Attorney-in-Fact must bring the signed copy of the agreement to the place where they will sign a document on the appointing individual’s behalf.

The Agent must then sign their name on the signature line for the signee and must print their own name next to the name of the Principle on the form. They must also indicate that they are signing on behalf of the Principle as their Power of Attorney.

What is the Difference Between a General and a Durable Power of Attorney?

The big difference between a General Power of Attorney and a Durable Power of Attorney is when the powers can and cannot be used. When you create your Alaska Power of Attorney as a General POA, its powers can only be used by the agent until they are withdrawn or the Principal becomes incapacitated.

Durable POAs on the other hand can continue to be used after the Principal is incapacitated. This makes them much better documents for estate planning in later life or to provide for medical necessities.
