My father is 93 and is barely ambulatory and my mother is 87. They wanted to add 2 children to their banking accounts so we could help pay bills and to minimize problems in the event one of them passes away. With great effort, managing an oxygen tank and wheelchair, we made it to the bank, only to discover both of their drivers licenses had recently expired. The bank could not do ANYTHING with their expired licenses. Now, we must plan another trip to the DMV to get a state i.d. If someone had applied for a state i.d. before their drivers license expired, we would have reduced their worries tremendously. The bank manager has said that, even though I have a durable power of attorney, they require both parents to be physically present with a non-expired i.d. This has become such a difficult challenge. We are now planning to make a trip to the DMV, hoping everyone will survive until then. Every day is precious.
