I need someone to take care of paying my bills and all other financial matters and to take me to the dr and other errands. I have a long time trusted friend who has financial experience and who I would give POA. What would be a resonable fee to pay this indiivual? I am currently paying a CPA an enormous fee. This is for state of Tennessee.
So do lawyers appointed as Guardians $200-400 per hour.
Chauffeurs get $30 per hour, some also get mileage.
Speaking as someone who has the powers of attorney for several people...the only one paying me is my mom . . . and THAT money, if she goes on Medicaid, would have to be returned . . . to do it RIGHT is a big responsibility, and a lot of work.
What you want is a win-win with your friend. It's very difficult to pull a number out off a hat, because it depends upon your friend's circumstances. Why not an hourly rate of $15 or $20 an hour? Most anyone would be thrilled with that. I can guarantee you that a professional would be four times that.
