Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today. No the power of attorney ceases upon their death.The personal representative appointed in probate assumes the position of representative for the persons estate.The POA has no legal authority as of the time of death.It does not survive death. I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
