Power of attorney


I have a power of attorney for mom but I recently changed my last name after a marriage, do I have to do a completely different power of attorney form or do I bring my marriage license with me when I need to use the power of attorney?

The power of attorney form is not invalidated by your name change. The bank will likely require proof of identification, and your marriage license should suffice. Next time your mom updates the power of attorney she can update your name. We recommend updating powers of attorney every 3 -5 years.
