How do I know if I’m an Authorized Legal Representative (ALR)?

An Authorized Legal Representative is someone who is legally authorized under state and federal law to make decisions for the beneficiary. You’re an ALR if you have Power of Attorney, or are the Legal Guardian or Conservator for a beneficiary. If the beneficiary is under the age of 18, the ALR can also be the parent.  

If you don’t currently have Power of Attorney for a beneficiary, you can use this form for limited Power of Attorney or find more information here.
