Administrator on Estate Account

Answered by: 

Question: 
On an Estate account can a person having a power of attorney from the administrator be added and conduct transactions?
Answer: 

No.

An administrator or other personal representative of an estate is a court-appointed fiduciary. He or she can hire agents to perform specific services, but absolutely cannot delegate their overall responsibility to anyone else. If a second signatory is needed on the account for any reason, the court will appoint an additional personal representative.

If a personal representative is incapacitated and has an attorney-in-fact acting on his personal behalf, then the court will appoint a new personal representative.
