Legal Question in Wills and Trusts in South Carolina

Withholding mail

My mother died on May 143, The post office held her mail saying they needed a power of attorney to collect it. Doesn't a power of attorney act while the person is living and has not power after death?

Can the postal service withheld mail in this manner?
