I need a power of attorney.

Yes. In the Power of Attorney, you simply designate the two individuals as co-power of attorney, and direct that the act in unison with each other.

This can be done. However, it is better to select one individual as the primary power of attorney and the other as an alternate. Otherwise, you risk chaos if the two individuals disagree on the best course of action.

The simple answer is yes; however, keep in mind that state laws vary and the scope and power to which you and your designated persons acting as power of attorney can greatly vary as well. Individuals, such as family members, financial advisors and even business trusts can act on one's behalf, specific to the necessity and even within defined capacities.
