Dad died from asbestos, I got a lawsuit settlement for mom. I am POA, how do I get my name on this estate account?
Dad died from asbestos cancer, I got mom set up for lawsuit, which she gets a check sometimes. We opened an estate acct at her bank (which I thought I was on it "estate" also) but I am not. I am on her account, but not the estate acct. She has dementia, can't walk and can't take care of her affairs. I have a POA but her bank will not accept it when I go to try to cash or deposit her "estate check", because it is payable to: the estate of---- my dad. What do I need to do to get my name on this estate account, or be able to take it to my bank, or? Thanks for your help.
