Big changes are underway for anyone employing a Pennsylvania Power of Attorney document in Pennsylvania.  Act No. 95, signed by the governor on July 2, 2014, is designed to curtail abuses by agents acting under a power of attorney, as well as allow some flexibility in the agent's services to the principal.  This new legislation applies to financial power of attorney documents only.  Advance health care directives or mental health power of attorney documents are not affected.
