I Have A Power Of Attorney For An Individual Who Just Passed Away. Can I Use The Power Of Attorney To Handle Estate Matters?

No, a power of attorney is revoked upon the death of the person who signed it. At that point in time, the personal representative, executor, or administrator becomes responsible for handling the estate.
