I'm worried about down the road when my Aunt passes away. As of now I'm my Aunt's Durable Power of Attorney. I'm also, her executor of her living Will.
I have access to her bank account as her POA. But, I was told after death POA is void. "Stops". We don't have a Joint bank account. I'm just on her bank account as her POA.
Since, I'm not on her account as Joint accounts. If she would pass away today?
How would I get access to her funds to pay for funeral costs ?
As I am her POA can I simply use one of my Aunt's checks to pay for her funeral costs? Even tho POA stops after death?
How would I do this?
After death, how would I get funds to pay for my Aunt's funeral costs?
I will be the person that will be incharge of barring her as funeral costs. My Aunt's alive now but,it just got me thinking what will I do when she passes away?
As of now she's 88 yrs old with dementia.To get her out and about to get anything changed is about a loss cause. She has a plot next to her Husbend.
She lost all of her importance paper work as plot deed, life insurance and whatever else she may have had. How would I find any life insurance policies she may have? Without knowing who the companies maybe?
