NEVER. You protect them by getting a POA or they add you as a signer so you can pay their bills for them. You take them to a lawyer for estate planning.

my mother upon realizing she had months to live , went to the bank and opened an account with me as joint owner , with full survivor benefits . she knew that otherwise her money would be locked into escrow for months after her death and no business could be conducted . mom still had a checkbook and atm card but a big show was made of me wielding the checkbook so my sis wouldnt try to wheem mom out of money for a house down pmt . we intended for her to have moms house but she thought she needed to move closer . sis aint too bright . thats why she wasnt poa .

I am trying to figure out why you would want to do this. Please tell us more. If your name is on their account, then you would probably be able to transfer it after they died. Before that time it could cause the problems mentioned above. If you have POA it could also be seen as a violation of the rules. I wouldn't do it.

Dadavis, just curious why you would want to transfer money from your parents bank account over to your bank account? If in the future your parents need care via Medicaid, such transfer of money would complicate the qualifying for such care.

Never. It's illegal and unethical to do so.
