I found signed papers giving my sibling POA over my parents finances and health.
I asked my then living father about them and he said that the POA was revoked. I did not find any revocation documents and my sibling is unaware the POA documents exist.
I care for my mother now and 80% of my parents assets have been moved to joint accounts (by my father).
My mother may need extended care now and the question of who has POA is coming up.
As the oldest in the family I have been making all decisions for her. My sibling lives out of state and rarely has much contact with her (us). Do I have a legal responsibility to disclose to my younger sibling about the POA papers?
I am the named successor trustee and executor of her Will but she is still receiving social security and pension payments (joint account) which I use to pay her (our) bills.
I could have her declared incapacitated according to the trust but the money she receives is not directed to the trust.
