My sister is authorizing me to have power of attorney over

Customer Question

My sister is authorizing me to have power of attorney over her financial matters. This way she does not need to sign paperwork and have it notarized (something that is more challenging with her than with me). What do you suggest is the most effective and
simplest POA that I should put in place and is there a template that you have or can point me to on the internet to put in place. I recognize that she will have to sign and notarize the POA to put it in place but then everything can be handled by me going

Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.
For financial matters, she will want to sign a Durable General Power of Attorney. I can provide you a template of for this document that will suit your needs perfectly. I can do that for you through the Additional Services option offered by JustAnswer. It's an additional cost, but will be for more economical for you than engaging an attorney or purchasing a random form off the internet. If that would be helpful, let me know and I'll extend that offer and you can then decide whether or not to accept. Fair enough?
