Are you asking if the POA is valid after the death of the principal?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Yes
Expert:  Loren replied 10 months ago.
Thank you for the clarification. All POA's terminate automatically, by law, upon the death of the principal. Otherwise, there would be no need for probate.
