[VIDEO] Your Bank Rejected Your Power of Attorney? Here’s Why! | Marietta Estate Planning Attorney

Posted by Steve Worrall | Aug 26, 2023

In this video, we discuss why your Power of Attorney (POA) might be rejected by your bank as 'too old' and what you can do about it. Many banks have policies regarding the acceptance of older POAs, which can lead to unexpected challenges. Watch to learn why this happens and how you can ensure your estate planning documents are up-to-date and legally valid.

Key Points:

  • Stale-Dated POAs: Some institutions consider older POAs 'stale' and may worry that they no longer accurately reflect your wishes.
  • Institutional Policies: Different banks have their own policies on accepting older POAs.
  • Keep Documents Current: Regularly review and update your estate planning documents, including your POA.
  • Check with Your Bank: Contact your financial institution to understand their policies on accepting older POAs.
  • Seek Legal Advice: Consult with an attorney to ensure your POA is valid and will be accepted when needed.

Don't let your estate planning documents become outdated. If you're facing issues with an old Power of Attorney, our experienced team is here to guide you through the process. Contact us today to ensure your wishes are properly represented.
