A well established lady marries a guy. The lady does everything she can to protect her assets and etc. The lady becomes very ill from a disease and need her husband to handle things such as bill, bank transactions and etc. The lady is well aware that the disease will cause her death in a matter of time. She doesn't want to put her husband's name on the bank account as the lady knows that he will have direct access once she pass away.
Instead she makes him power of attorney, since its no longer valid after her passing.
Now we know that power of attorney ends once the person dies. Could the husband legally still take funds from the account they had access to once the person passed away? Would it even be legal to take funds from the accounts for the funeral?From my understanding access to bank accounts with a power of attorney that is no longer in effect is wrong. If the person wanted the person to have direct access to the bank accounts the person would have placed their name of the accounts (jointly). If this is a crime, what could the person be charged with? Also, who would the family contact if they suspect this is going on?
