Once again, New York State made changes to its power of attorney law and revised the statutory power of attorney and gifts rider forms. The changes went into effect on September 12, 2010.
The New York State Bar Association has the new POA and SGR forms for download in Word or Wordperfect, along with suggested clauses for the Modifications sections. The forms cost $20 but are free for NYSBA members.
You can download the forms here.
