(2) Take possession and order the removal and shipment of property of the principal from a post, warehouse, depot, dock, or other place of storage or safekeeping, either governmental or private, and execute and deliver a release, voucher, receipt, bill of lading, shipping ticket, or certificate the attorney in fact considers desirable or necessary.

(3) Prepare, file, and prosecute the claim of the principal to a benefit or assistance, financial or otherwise, to which the principal is or claims to be entitled under a statute or regulation existing at the time of the execution of the power of attorney or enacted after execution of the power of attorney by the United States, a state, or a subdivision of a state, or by a foreign government if the benefit or assistance arises from or is based upon military service performed before or after the execution of the power of attorney by the principal or a person related by blood or marriage to the principal and execute a receipt or other instrument the attorney in fact considers desirable or necessary for the enforcement or collection of the claim.

(4) Receive the financial proceeds of a claim described in this section, conserve, invest, disburse, or use anything received from a claim for purposes permitted under this section, and reimburse the attorney in fact for expenditures properly made in the execution of powers conferred upon the attorney in fact.
