What does the POA mean on a bank account?
Power of Attorney (POA) on a bank account is a legal document that authorizes another person to act on your behalf when it comes to financial decisions. Typically, it authorizes somebody to access your bank accounts, manage them, and to make payments, deposits, and withdrawals. A POA might also be used to purchase or sell stocks or other investments, or to pay bills or taxes.
How much does it cost to get power of attorney in California?
The cost to get a power of attorney in California will vary depending on the type of POA and the complexity of the financial situation. Generally, the fees for a POA in California will range from $100 to $400. If a lawyer is involved, the cost may be even higher.
If you are setting up a POA for a bank account, the bank may require you to use their own special forms. Usually, the bank will charge a fee for its services, which can range from $25 to $50. The exact fee will depend on the type of POA and the services requested.
In addition to the fees for setting up a POA, there may also be fees for notarizing the document. Notarizing a POA means having the document legally witnessed and signed by a notary public. This will usually cost $10 to $15.
