If a person has 3 POA's, do all three have to agree before a decision is made?


3 daughters have P.O.A. one is a user and a greedy person, always has been, does not have mom's best interest at heart. Talked mom into adding her on P.O.A.

puddlejumper, each individual can act on their own accord unless the POA document states differently or if the bank has to have more than one signature on a check. The problems come in when one POA does not agree with what another POA does. It can get messy. I agree with Jeanne that the POA should be changed. The best arrangement could be one POA and one alternate to serve if the primary POA is not available.

Being a POA is not fun if there is a good bit of work. Some parents are afraid of showing favoritism in assigning POAs, so we end up with situations like this.

Unless the POA says otherwise, yes. (Unless one is primary and others are secondary.)

Multiple co-POAs is a disaster, in my opinion -- even when they all have Mom's best interest at heart.

Mom can change the POA, is she is still competent. Does she see that this is an untenable situation?
