What’s the difference in being Power of Attorney, Executor or Personal Representative?

When someone appoints you as their power-of-attorney, also known as an “attorney-in-fact,” you are the person’s (the principal’s) agent with authority to act on that person’s behalf. When the principal dies, the agency ends immediately and so the power-of-attorney no longer exists. The person appointed to probate or administer the deceased person’s estate is known as the “Personal Representative.” Years ago, the title was “Executor.” Executor and Personal Representative mean the same thing and both terms are commonly used.
