LPA Applications To Be Made Digitally from Nov. 14: CNA


All applications for Lasting Power of Attorney, a document that you can use to give people power to manage your affairs if you lose mental capacity, have to be made via an online portal from Nov. 14, CNA reports, citing the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) as saying on Oct. 15.

  • LPA applications are to be signed digitally via Singpass (previously, it has to be signed manually on a physical form)

  • Hardcopies may still be accepted in exceptional situations subjected to approval

  • Hardcopy LPA certified prior to the launch of the digital portal can still be submitted within 6 months from the date of the donor's signature on the form

  • Donors (people making the LPA) and donees (people who have been assigned powers), including those who registered their LPAs before the digital launch, will be able to view their LPAs in the new digital portal

  • Donors can share their LPA with trusted individuals and after the donor loses mental capacity, donees can share the online LPA with third-party agencies to facilitate transactions on behalf of the donor

  • Donors will still need to meet certificate issues in-person for LPA certification to ensure that the donor understands the LPA being made as well as to make sure that there's no fraud or undue influence

  • Note: LPA form 1 application fees ($75) are waived for all Singaporeans till March 31, 2023.
