is to be determined, the agent is entitled to the compensation as specified.

compensation as determined by the clerk of superior court in accordance with G.S. 32-59.
(c) Unless the power of attorney otherwise provides, an agent is entitled upon request
to the clerk of superior court pursuant to G.S. 32-59 to be reimbursed for expenses properly incurred on behalf of the principal.
