MARYLAND STATUTORY FORM PERSONAL
FINANCIAL POWER OF ATTORNEY
IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND WARNING
You should be very careful in deciding whether or not to sign this document. The powers granted by you (the principal) in this document are broad and sweeping. This power of attorney authorizes another person (your agent) to make decisions concerning your property for you (the principal). Your agent will be able to make decisions and act with respect to your property (including your money) whether or not you are able to act for yourself.
You should select someone you trust to serve as your agent. Unless you specify otherwise, generally the agent’s authority will continue until you die or revoke the power of attorney or the agent resigns or is unable to act for you.
You need not grant all of the powers listed below. If you choose to grant less than all of the listed powers, you may instead use a Maryland Statutory Form Limited Power of Attorney and mark on that Maryland Statutory Form Limited Power of Attorney which powers you intend to delegate to your attorney-in-fact (the Agent) and which you do not want the Agent to exercise.
This power of attorney becomes effective immediately unless you state otherwise in the Special Instructions.
You should obtain competent legal advice before you sign this power of attorney if you have any questions about the document or the authority you are granting to your agent.
