Power of Attorney Forms (Downloadable)

The New York Statutory Short Form Power of Attorney and New York Statutory Gifts Rider Authorization went into effect on September 12, 2010, the thirtieth day after it became law.

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. The modifications are provided by Kathryn Grant Madigan of Levene Gouldin & Thompson, LLP, and other State Bar volunteers, including Michael O'Connor of Delaney and O'Connor. Please note that some of these clauses are mutually exclusive and should be inserted in accordance with the direction/best interests of the Principal. You should also enter your own modifications, as appropriate, to best meet the needs of the Principal. 

Although you are required to log in, there is no charge for members.  At checkout, members should see a zero balance.  There is a $20 charge for non-members.

Please be sure to read the instructions before downloading the form.
