Making a Rhode Island Power of Attorney

  • What is a Rhode Island Power of Attorney?

    Though it's unpleasant to think about, there may come a time when you aren't able to make important decisions for yourself. Whether it's after a serious accident, a major illness, or even just a temporary time away, you can make a plan now and designate someone to make decisions on your behalf. A Power of Attorney grants legal permission for another person or organization (an "agent") to act on your behalf if you're not able to do so. You can choose for this power to begin immediately, on a specific date, or at any time when you become incapacitated. The powers granted in the Power of Attorney can terminate either on a specific date or upon your death.


    Use the Rhode Island Power of Attorney document if:

    • You wish to give someone broad authorization to act for you if you are absent or incapable.
    • 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 if case you become legally incompetent or incapacitated.

    You may designate the Power of Attorney as "general," granting broad powers to control your financial, health, legal, and other matters, or "special," granting power for only specific situations.

    The Rhode Island Power of Attorney is specific to the laws of the state of Rhode Island and should be created by residents of Rhode Island and signed in front of a Rhode Island notary public.
