Pennsylvania durable power of attorney authorizes an individual to act as attorney-in-fact for a principal and manage their financial affairs. While a non-durable power of attorney will expire upon the incapacity of the principal, a durable power of attorney will continue in effect even if the principal becomes mentally incompetent. This additional provision, in combination with the general rights granted through a power of attorney, ensures that the principal’s financial interests will be managed consistently throughout their lifetime or until the document is revoked.
