Agents without Power to Create Joint Accounts

Power of attorney did not include power to create joint accounts with rights of survivorship, or to commingle assets of the principal with the agents, so the creation of a joint account was invalid and the money in the account was part of the principal’s estate.  Miller Estate, 7 Fid.Rep.3d 195 (Cumberland Co. O.C. 2017), rev’d, 312 MDA 2017 (Pa. Super. 11/6/2017) (non-precedential).
