The POA terminated upon his death so it provides you with no authority to act in his name. The beneficiary designations form controls who will receive the death benefits from the life insurance policy. You should conference with an attorney.See question

Estate has been in Probate over a year.
This sounds more like a communication problem between you and the lawyer. Have you been told why closing has been delayed? There are many necessary steps to be taken to PROPERLY close an estate and discharge you from not only your responsibility as executor but also potential personal liability. Proceed with extreme caution and confer with another attorney if your current lawyer is not communicating. Good luck.See question
First my Sister hasn't seen the Will or Living Trust papers. I have been grieving and have not had time to show her. The Living Trust names Me as administrator of Estate my mother did at an attorney office about 6 years ago. But the Will was done ...
I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. I agree with Mr. Early. It's probable that the Trust will control distribution of assets that were owned by and titled into Trust ownership, while the Will controls what other assets were not owned by the Trust. You truly need to take all relevant documents available to you and confer with an attorney who has expertise in this area.See question
My mom is on both property deeds one they lived in one they rented out in another county. Also two cars only in dads name. Do any of this need to go through probate.
I'm sorry for your loss. Whether probate is necessary in order to distribute title to the real estate depends greatly on the way your parents names appear on each deed. Probate is likely necessary for the vehicles to be re-titled.I strongly recommend you confer with an experienced probate attorney near you. Good luck.See question

Probate could have been avoided if you were on both the mortgage and the deed, as joint tenants with right of survivorship. I assume you were added to the deed after the mortgage was taken out - which creates additional legal issues. You really would benefit from talking with a knowledgeable probate attorney to evaluate your options. Give the attorney all relevant documentation so he or she can best advise you. Good luck.See question
The trust would be a "Revocable Living Trust".
In general, not a problem, unless you're trying to use it to convey guns or weapons that he may be prohibited from possessing when he's released. Probably it's more important who will be the Successor Trustee. You really should confer with an experienced attorney in the field of Trusts and Estates.See question
