Ok here goes. My older brother and I are caring for our mother. Mom lives with me and my older brother has the POA and controls all finances. He also depends on mom’s funds due to hardship from dealing with our father and caring for him and simultaneously our mother. Now he has been paying all her bills and wants to transfer money from her accounts to my own bank account to pay for our mom’s needs. The issue is I don’t feel comfortable doing that because I don’t want any of her funds tied to my account in any way. I am afraid if there is any audit then I’ll have to explain why money was spent for other things such as my older brother's expenses for whatever and I don’t want to be involved in that. My main concern is my mother getting the care she needs and having the funds to pay for her expenses which I do. Also her house is getting sold and that money will be set aside for her Care. Sooo, how can I protect myself of any state or audits accusing me of any financial misdeeds if I have no access whatsoever to her accounts? Can I suffer consequences or blame if such? I have receipts of all expenses on her behalf that I’ve paid out of my own funds as well. I am not trying to insinuate my older brother is doing wrong or mismanaging mom’s money. But from my understanding her funds must only be spent on her and children cannot get compensated for her caregiving. I just don’t want problems or accusations. Please any help, advice is greatly appreciated.
