Letter to Confirm Authorization

There are times when you can’t attend to your formal commitments personally. There may be different factors such as an illness, being on a vacation, or having moved to another address. In this case, you must give authorization to someone you know to attend these personal matters. However, there are many people who would pretend to be someone you know to get these important documents and payments. That is why you have to confirm that you have given authorization to someone through a formal letter.

A Letter to Confirm Authorization is used as proof that you authorize the person to act on your behalf. This letter will not break easily especially if you have placed your signature, or attached a photocopy of you and the person’s ID as a proof of relationship. You should be formal and brief when writing this letter.

It must include the reason why you cannot attend personally, name of the authorized person, your relationship, the work to be done, and your contact information in case they have further questions. You can also state the validity of the letter if necessary.

Here is the following example of a Letter to Confirm Authorization:

Subject: Authorization Letter for Effie Starnes

To Whom It May Concern:

I, Diego Starnes, issue this letter to authorize my daughter Effie Starnes, to collect my checks in the approximate amount of $10,000. I cannot go personally to your office due to medical reasons. However, I will resume collecting these checks myself upon my return.

Attached to this letter are photocopies of my medical certificate as well as my daughter’s two valid IDs. I have also included our signatures for authenticity. If you still have inquires please don’t hesitate to call me at 215-555-4022.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Respectfully yours,

Diego Starnes
