A Power of Attorney (POA) can be "durable" or "springing." "Durable" means that the POA remains effective even if the principal becomes incapacitated. "Springing" means that the POA only becomes effective at a future date or upon the occurrence of a future event or contingency. The POA is said to “spring into” existence upon the conditions stated in the POA. If a POA is springing, the principal may authorize one or more persons to determine that the event or contingency stated in the POA has occurred.
