Yes, pay $1500-$5000 and no instruction exactly how to execute anything. Then call lawyer to ask and get another $200 bill. Call the payee and ask them. Then it is their problem.

As everyone else as said, Your Name and POA. I have been my Mom's for a couple of years now. I made it a point to send copies of mine to people that I knew I would have to deal with by phone. Mortgage Company, Utilities, ETC. According to your circumstances you may want to take a copy to the Pharmacy and give them a list of authorized people that can pickup medications. I had to do this in order to keep a particular sister from getting Mom's pain med's for herself. I can't tell you how much this helped cutout the crap she was pulling. It was either do that or I was going to hunt her down and choke her.

IT DEPENDS,

your name and the words “Power of Attorney”
Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, Power of Attorney for Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

sign the principal's name for him on the signature line. Below his name, write "By" followed by your signature. Next to your signature write in "POA for" which stands for power of attorney, and then write the name of the principal.

Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx by Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx POA

In Massachusetts, if Charles Smith granted a POA to Judith Quinn, Judith would sign Charles Smith's name on the signature line of any legal document and below the line should be the notation,
Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
by Dxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, Attorney-in-Fact, POA for Dxxxxxxxxxxxxx

"by Judith Quinn as Attorney-in-Fact for Charles Smith". A copy of the POA may be requested by the other party to the document.

I usually sign his name, then off to the end of it put a slash, and POA. I've noticed more and more medical documents have "Patient Representative" in which case you sign your name.

Be sure you have the paper POA handy when signing. They will want to see what powers it grants you.

Hi, I'm the Power of Attorney for my mother and I sign "my name", then "POA for "my mother's name"".

It might depend upon the document you're signing. I was POA for my dad and I remember signing my name then "POA" after my signature but whoever you're dealing with will let you know how to sign the document.
