Everyday financial institutions are required to complete transactions for customers that involve Power of Attorney or Living Trust documents. To protect the financial institution's interests when using these documents, it is imperative to understand the basic do's and don'ts. This two hour presentation is designed to provide financial institution personnel with the best practices that can be used in dealing with these complex legal documents.
