About This Webinar:
Powers-of-attorney and living trust agreements are complex legal documents used to transact business with your credit union on a daily basis. If not handled properly, they can expose your credit union to significant risk. This webinar will explain everything you need to know about powers-of-attorney and about living trusts, including more difficult situations involving joint accounts, multiple attorneys-in-fact, misconduct by an attorney-in-fact, and death of the accountholder. All aspects of power-of-attorney documents and living trust documents will be covered and a uniform certification of trust and a durable power-of-attorney will be examined. In addition, we will discuss the steps that your credit union can take to reduce your risk of loss when dealing with powers-of-attorney and living trusts.
- What does a valid power-of-attorney document look like?
- Should your credit union only accept durable powers-of-attorney?
- What does a valid living trust document look like?
- What actions can the attorney-in-fact or the trustee take on behalf of your member?
- When does a power-of-attorney or a living trust terminate?
- What steps can your credit union take to reduce risk of loss from powers-of-attorney and living trusts?
