My mom created a durable power of attorney document last year.

Customer Question

My mom created a durable power of attorney document last year. It states I am her primary agent. It also states my sister is her secondary agent and my other sister is an alternate agent.
What does this mean as far as who decides what happens to my mom's property (car, bank accounts, debts, lease, etc. when she passes?
State is Wisconsin.

Primary and secondary agents would make decisions together.alternate agent fills in should one of the two agents cannot serve or resigns, passes away.The document should identify if both agents need to agree to make a decision. Normally need unanimous consent
