Making an Oregon Power of Attorney
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.
You may use the Oregon Power of Attorney document if:
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.

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.
