Question: If there is an old address on a Power of Attorney Health Care Form, is it still legal?

Answer:

If someone’s address has changed, DO NOT write on the document. Simply note it on a separate page called “contact information.”
All powers of attorney are void at death. Powers of attorney can also be revoked. If your agent needs to start acting for you, you may want to record your financial power of attorney in your county recorder’s office.
