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 can provide documentation of Power of Attorney or Legal Guardianship of the beneficiary, or are a parent of a beneficiary under the age of 18.
