My 99 yr old grandmother has chosen my uncle and myself to be her POA co-agents. My father was her only POA but he passed away recently, leaving no one to take care of her finances. I got her an attorney and he met with her-she made her own choice. My uncle lives in a different state and time zone than me. Have any of you been co-agents with someone who lived far away? The wording of the document is that we work together, not independently. My uncle wants to talk to me about the missing details day after tomorrow. I’m perfectly fine with him being Primary agent and me being back up. It makes sense that one of us holds the checkbooks and pays her bills (she’s not on Medicaid) and does her taxes. I’m just trying to figure out how we can be co-agents from separate places and still carry out her wishes. Grandma is 99, very deaf and lives in assisted living facility in yet another state from us. When my dad got sick and went into hospital he stopped paying her bills-he stopped paying his own-I did that. He died in nursing home after 3 months and now I’m dealing with his estate. It’s a lot to take on! But, my grandmother’s stuff needs to be attended to ASAP.
