The types of acceptable Power of Attorney’s for Great West Life are property POA’s and general POA’s, which allows for the appointed attorney(s) to make decisions on the plan members’ behalf, including the administration of the benefits plan and payments of benefits. Personal POA’s are not acceptable for these purposes.
