Can I change or revoke my durable power of attorney?

You are free to revoke or amend your durable power of attorney at any time as long as you are mentally capable of making decisions for yourself. Do not forget that a durable power of attorney continues even when you become incapacitated. As your agent acts on your behalf, it is completely up to you when, how, and for how long your agent’s powers will continue to exist. In order to change a durable power of attorney, the easiest option is usually to revoke it completely and create a new one. Inform your agent and any organizations when you have amended or revoked your durable power of attorney.
