I live in Texas, my grandson resides with me now. His mother was in jail and will be going back in September. Can i receive assistance with a power of attorney
Take the Power of Attorney and your grandson's birth certificate and go to the Social Security office in El Paso and ask what else, if anything, you need for some help. They will want to know about the father. Without knowing just what the power of attorney says, I can't give you a definitive answer. Social Security may want a formal guardianship or a power of attorney called a Declaration of Guardianship.
I suggest you contact Texas Rural Legal Aid at 915-585-5183 for an appointment before going to Social Security.
I am going to move you to Guardianship.
