Many people, including agents, mistakenly believe they have the power of a principal’s estate once the principal dies.
Instead, all powers of attorney, including medical and financial powers, automatically terminate upon the principal’s death.
Once someone dies, legal authority to administer that person’s estate and handle their final affairs will pass to their court-appointed personal representative. Your will gives you the ability to select who that person is.
