It seems Pension agency will only deal with receiver of pensions. They require signature of pensioner, and notary witness even for simply change of address, on a form for appointment of DPOA . Or a Court order. They give no fax number to legal departments, for you to fax your documents for review and change of address. Pension is direct deposited so it will come even if you do not change address. Pensioner is now in Nursing home and bed ridden and miles away and needs guidance in what to do on legal papers. Caring son:) Any thoughts?
