How do I get my Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) done?
Visit Office of Public Guardian website for more details on LPA.
The application fees for the LPA Form 1 will be waived for Singapore citizens until 31 March 2026.
The LPA application and submission is now done through OPGO. You may submit a hardcopy LPA only under the exception situations listed in Section 11(2a) of the MCA. The acceptance of any hardcopy LPA is subject to the Public Guardian’s approval.
You will have to fill in the LPA application form through the OPG online (OPGO) portal via Singpass. Choose your Donee(s) and they will be informed through SMS or email to accept their appointment through the portal.
After your chosen Donee(s) has accepted, you will have to visit a LPA certificate issuer to witness, certify and submit your LPA. Any one of the following professionals in Singapore can be the certificate issuer for your LPA:
- a medical practitioner accredited by the Public Guardian;
- a practising lawyer*; or
- a registered psychiatrist
*Note: This refers to a Singapore solicitor qualified to practice Singapore law in a Singapore law practice.
You can also book for an onsite doctor's visit to certify your LPA
