Do you have to provide your social security number to a lawyer when becoming Power of Attorney for someone? If so, what other documents or data must the person assuming the role of Power of Attorney provide? I've heard that banks require their own POA in addition and that they will photocopy the POA's ID and require their social. Is this necessary, legal and if so, is it wise to provide these documents considering the security of guarding one's social security number? If not, what options exist with the banks? Also, does the Principal need to provide the social security number to the lawyer preparing the POA?
