My father's Power of Attorney contains the following language:
"If the above-named person(s) is/are unable to act as my agent, I nominate the following person(s) to serve as my alternate agent(s): SIBLING 1, SIBLING 2, one at a time, in the order listed."
Above named person is me. SIBLINGS 1 and 2 are my brother and sister.
This exists in both his General and Healthcare Durable Power of Attorney documents.
I am able to act as his POA, but desire to delegate that authority to either or both of my siblings. They are willing to take over.
If I provide them each with the POA document, and a signed letter stating that I support and authorize their use of POA, would that be sufficient for them effectively to act on his behalf? What specific language should that letter contain? Do I need to involve and attorney?
Many, many thanks to anyone who can offer guidance.
