I have read several posts where people comment on being listed as a POA but do not know what is involved. Sometimes people say they did not know they had been listed as POA.
I am curious, how can that happen?
When Mum updated her will, DPOA and HCP, I had to meet with her lawyer. He discussed the ramifications of my accepting the responsibility for the DPOA and HCP. I was given a copy of each document (not the will) after my signature was witnessed by two people.
I am also executrix of her will, but will not see a copy of that document before she passes, unless Mum decides for some reason to show it to me. There is one unusual bequest that she did tell me about.
