Estate Planning: Using Power of Attorney for an IRA
There may come a point in your life where you will need to select a loved one to make significant financial decisions on your behalf. This process is by no means easy, but in the event that you are unwilling or unable to manage your own finances, having someone assigned as a power of attorney (POA) can help make things easier down the road.
However, the process should not end once you’ve selected your attorney-in-fact.
There are many other considerations that should be addressed, including the POA policies and procedures for the financial institutions where your IRA or other retirement accounts are held. In some instances, an IRA custodian might demand submitting specific documents or meeting requirements before it honors your POA agreement.
