New Hampshire Statutory Durable Power of Attorney Form

The New Hampshire statutory durable power of attorney allows a principal to nominate an agent, a.k.a. “attorney-in-fact,” to make financial decisions on their behalf. The agent may be asked to handle the principal’s taxes, personal property, real estate, digital assets, retirement benefits, and other financial interests. Before the agent’s authority goes into effect, they must sign an acknowledgment statement that is the same or substantially similar to the one included at the end of this document. This power of attorney is “durable,” meaning that the principal’s financial affairs can be managed by the attorney-in-fact even if they become mentally incapacitated.
