Mom, you CAN do this but maybe there is a good reason your son does not want you to. Have you been scammed out of money? Do you handle money well, or do you get behind on bills? Do you have habits that cost a lot of money and are not good for you? Think it through, maybe with a trusted advisor; if you can't trust your son it is one thing, and yes you should get control back, but it it is not that - he is trustworthy and you just want to be in control - ask yourself first if that is really really best.

Mom, go see your attorney and have him draft the termination letter.

This is from an internet search, but may give you a starting point:
"If for any reason, you become unhappy with the person you have appointed to make decisions for you under a durable power of attorney, you may revoke the power of attorney at any time. There are a few steps you should take to ensure the document is properly revoked.

While any new power of attorney should state that old powers of attorney are revoked, you should also put the revocation in writing. The revocation should include your name, a statement that you are of sound mind, and your wish to revoke the power of attorney. You should also specify the date the original power of attorney was executed and the person selected as your agent. Sign the document and send it to your current agent as well as any institutions or agencies that have a copy of the power of attorney. Attach your new power of attorney if you have one.

You will also need to get the old power of attorney back from your agent. If you can't get it back, send the agent a certified letter, stating that the power of attorney has been revoked.

Because a durable power of attorney is the most important estate planning instrument available, if you revoke a power of attorney, it is important to have a new one in place. An elder law attorney can assist you in revoking an old power of attorney or drafting a new one."

Banks normally require a copy of the POA document before they will recognize someone signing as a POA.

Who has been signing your name as POA on things that is no you?

I thought you were number 2 on your mom's POA according to what we've discussed previously?
