Then, there was one account, that Mom was too ill and I had not gotten to. They said an X was ok as her signature. So, if you have a friend or relative who is a notary, I would go to the bank and tell them that your Mom is ill and you need to get a POA for her bank accounts. Tell them she is awake and possibly unable to sign as her condition is changing. Take it home do what you have to do.
As for the bills and the debts. The people who receive payment, they really don't care who it comes from as long as it has her account number on it.
When Mom does pass. You need to get letters of administration and enough copies of her death certificate to send to major creditors and then most others will take copies.
I am so sorry that you are dealing with all of this. I know, really know
just how stressful this is. This is really minor, believe it or not. Now is
really the time to be a daughter. To absorb what is happening, and be with
Mom as much as possible. Mom is not going back to work and her credit score
is not really going to matter, but you do, this time does......
