That is exactly what I was looking for. Since the Power of Attorney gives you that power and authority, then the credit union should not give you any problem if you go there with the original Power of Attorney and the doctor's letter. Actually, holding a Power of Attorney, you should be able to withdraw as much as is needed, and the entire amount, if necessary, but bring the doctor's letter with you. The credit union should not give you any trouble at all. If they try to give you any trouble, the best thing I can tell you is do not look as if they have intimidated or scared you. Stand firm and stand your ground because you have every right to be there and every right to withdraw the money that your mother needs to spend down in order to have your mother properly taken care of by the nursing home.
If, after showing them the Power of Attorney and the letter from your mother's doctor, the Credit Union refuses to give you your mother's money, you should immediately file a lawsuit against them. You will need an Attorney for this because you don't want to make any mistakes and time is of the essence at that point. You will ask the Attorney to ask the Judge to award him or her Attorneys' Fees because they are the ones who forced you to go to Court to assert a right you already had. I do not think it will come to that because Powers of Attorney are used every day and have become very common place,
