Dear lawyers! I am taking care of my aunt (born in 1915) who was a prisoner in Germany during the war. She is entitled to receive a compensation from the fund of common understanding and reconciliation. The payment will take place till the end of 2005. Her health is getting worse. Can she issue a power of attorney in my name for receiving the money after her death?
According to Art. 188 part 1 item 6 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation a power of attorney is considered terminated upon issuer's death, i.e. after your aunt's death you will not be able to receive any compensations instead of her.
