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 for the beneficiary. If there is no power of attorney, you must be either be a parent or legal guardian of the beneficiary.
