No POA. Mom wants me to pay her bills from my home and she will cut me a check. She doesn't want to give either sibling POA. The other sibling will not cash checks for her since the back gets signed by whomever cashes it so I do it. I'm starting to think I may be sorry. Any advice for what I should or shouldn't do with her finances and cash checking? Can I still help her and not be sorry?
A checking account can be opened, entitled " daughter, as rep-payee for mother".
Look into it, because if she needs help, she may NEED a rep-payee, if not a POA.
Never co-mingle her funds with yours (or anyone else's for that matter). It is just not good accounting practice, imo.
