Although the specific language of the statutory forms cannot be changed, modifications can be made in subsection (g) of the Power of Attorney form and under paragraphs (b) and (c) of the Statutory Gifts Rider Authorization. Sample modifications to the Power of Attorney form and the Statutory Gifts Rider Authorization are also included.

Please note that some of these clauses are mutually exclusive and should be inserted in accordance with the direction/best interests of the Principal.

    1. The link above is for NY Durable POA currently in effect. However, this “new” 10-page form is more complicated than its predecessors and I suggest that you contact an attorney for advice and assistance before using it.

  1. My brother and I signed a POA on July 30, 2010 for our dad, which was the old short form. Now I went to the bank and they said this form is not valid becasue we need to redo the POA with the new short form effective 9/12/10. Is this true and why do we need to redo the POA?

    1. This web site is for information only. It does not provide legal advice. You should contact an attorney admitted to practice in your jurisdiction. If you are in New York, you may wish to call the Lawyer Referral Information Service of the New York State Bar Association at 1-800-342-3661.
