Can I name more than one person as agent?

Question: Can I name more than one person as agent?

Answer: If you have a power of attorney you can name more than one person as an agent. You can have them serve as co-powers of attorney; you need to be careful that you identify what happens if they disagree and cannot agree on what has to happen. You also can appoint successors to a power of attorney. I typically recommend that a client names one person as power of attorney and if they are unable to serve that we have a successor in line so that your financial affairs are not interrupted trying to get a new power of attorney set up through the probate court.
