It depends on your state. Usually it’s just a form that you have to fill out and get notarized to be legal. The notary usually doesn’t cost very much. Is it for the state of Oregon?

ETA: Also there is a difference between a P of A for financial purposes and medical purposes….

For tax and financial purposes you can find the form here: LINK TO FORM

For Advanced Directive and medical P of A: LINK TO FORM

I would be careful about giving a power of attorney to your boyfriend.  I used to live in a big military area and I heard of so many SOs/spouses who were taken advantage of when their SO was overseas.

Okay, just want things to work out for the best for you!  Didn’t mean to sound judgemental!

Your recruiter should be able to help you with this information. & you can also arrange POA through JAG for free. I read that you’re joining the national guard & will going to basic soon. We didn’t need the POA while my husband was in basic (army) but a lot of people got them anyway. You can get a Special POA instead of a General POA which will prevent your boyfriend from taking advantage of your belongings and income.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: A lot of married military couples do have a joint account but still get the special POA for the reason

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: gave. Spouses get deployed and the spouse left behind takes everything. The special POA prevents that from happening. Regardless, either POA would allow him to file your taxes.
