Does having power of attorney mean that the person may change a beneficiary without their knowledge?

Question Details: My mother got a life insurance policy naming me as the beneficiary. After she passed, I called to inquire about it only to find out that my brother had been sent the paperwork. The employee stated that she could not give me information as to why I was no longer the named beneficiary. My brother stated that he had been paying the insurance for many years, however my mother showed me that it was being deducted from her bank account.
