Oregon Power of Attorney basics

If you need to assign a trusted agent to act on your behalf, then you may need to make a Power of Attorney. With an Oregon Power of Attorney form, your agent(s) can be granted the authority to make decisions in your absence, sign documents for you, or otherwise manage your legal and financial matters.


When can I use the Oregon Power of Attorney document?


You may use the Oregon Power of Attorney document if:

  • You wish to give someone broad authorization to act for you if you are absent or incapable of acting or making decisions on your own behalf.
  • You wish to give someone power to handle certain financial or legal issues in your absence or if you become ill.
  • You wish to authorize someone to act on your behalf in case you become legally incompetent or incapacitated.

Does Power of Attorney need to be notarized in Oregon?


Oregon statutes do not explicitly mention the need for a Power of Attorney to be notarized. However, Oregon statutes provide that a signature that is acknowledged by a notary public is presumed to be genuine.


How do I get a Power of Attorney in Oregon?


Making an Oregon Power of Attorney online is simple. You'll answer a few questions and Rocket Lawyer will then build your document for you. Go over the following questions first to make the process easier:

  • Who will you designate as your Agent, Co-Agent, and Successor Agent?
  • Would you like to grant your Agent broad or specific powers?
  • Will your Agent have authority over any of your assets, businesses, trusts, or real estate?
  • Will your Agent be compensated?

Don't worry if you don't have all of the details right now. You can skip questions, save your document, and come back later to complete it.


What are the different types of Power of Attorney?


There are four main types of Power of Attorney forms: General Power of Attorney, Durable Power of Attorney, Special Power of Attorney, and Springing Durable Power of Attorney.

While a General Power of Attorney ends when you become incapacitated, a Durable Power of Attorney maintains your Agent's authority to act on your behalf even if you become incapacitated and are unable to communicate or make decisions for yourself. A Springing Durable Power of Attorney becomes effective as soon as the document is signed, unlike a Durable Power of Attorney, and only goes into effect if a specific event occurs (for example, if you become incapacitated).

A Special Power of Attorney, also known as a Limited Power of Attorney, allows an Agent to act only in specific situations.


What is the difference between a Durable Power of Attorney and a General Power of Attorney?


A General Power of Attorney ends when you become incapacitated. On the other hand, a Durable Power of Attorney contains specific language which maintains your Agent's authority even if you are unable to communicate or make decisions for yourself.
