2021 NY Power of Attorney

2021 New York State 2021 Power of Attorney with Westchester County venue. This Power of Attorney is not intended for Interntional apostille use and should not be used if you are unfamiliar with agent/principal relationships.


Note that we have had signers call us after having their POA rejected by their bank. This is common and banks have the absolute right under § 644 of New York’s General Obligations Law to wait 10 days to even provide and answer.

So please, this is important, make sure you’ve reviewed you Power of Attorney a few times before submitting to a financial institution. If it’s “mission critical” that the Power of Attorney be instantly accepted and in “full force”, you’ll need to have a New York State attorney certify it. If the bank sees an attorney attached to the document, they will not “play games” as the civil penalties could be huge.

One common rejection we hear is banks asking for the “gift rider affidavit” or attachment. This rejection was common with the old 2010 Power of Attorney, but the new 2021 version eliminates this and includes the $5000 gift rider provision on page 3 section (g).

Remember we cannot assist you in preparing this document, but we can warn you of the issues that have come up with past clients.

Apostille Near Me

The search term “Apostille Services Near Me” is one of the most common searches for individuals trying to find an apostille company to authenticate their documents.

For some industries, using a company that makes believe they’re “near you” might be ok. But apostille authentications of your documents, whether a birth certificate or sensitive business documents are not one of them.

Many companies that show up on Google will make-believe they’re “near you” then try and send you FedEx or UPS “mailer packs” to have you ship your documents to them.

This – is what an “apostille service near me” that pays for Google ads does. They essentially waste your time, money and destroy the Apostille business for the rest of us.

If you’re in Westchester County, White Plains Apostille and Mobile Notary either allows you to drop off your documents in person or, in Southern Westchester, will pick them up from you. When expediting your apostille authentication, your documents never leave the expediter’s hands.

Just the fact they are claiming to be an “apostille near me” begins your relationship on a fallacy. If you’re in Westchester, Rockland, or The Bronx we are “an apostille service near me”! We are physically here and “near you”.

In addition, we offer document drop-offs and pick-ups 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

White Plains Apostille is also creating drop off points for:

  1. Mount Kisco
  2. Bedford
  3. Somers
  4. Yorktown Heights
  5. Cortlandt Manor
  6. Peekskill

Apostille Birth Certificate Definition

An apostille is a certification or authentication provided under the 1961 Hague Convention for authenticating documents for use in foreign countries.

The main function of a birth certificate apostille is to certify the authenticity of the signature of the document and the authenticity and legal standing of the originating notary.

Both the New York State and the U.S Department of State will only issue apostilles for documents to use in countries that are members of the 1961 Hague Convention.

State-issues documents for use in countries that are members of 1961 convention must be authenticated by the competent authority in the state where the document was issued.

Most states consider that a birth certificate is a private document but any person can obtain an apostille of their birth certificate. An apostille birth certification is an official copy of the original birth certificate that is verified and signed by the respective official – for example the Westchester County Clerk.
