For families already dealing with the grief of loss of a loved one, the process of administering their estate can be a daunting task. The unfortunate reality is that the Trustee or Executor of an estate is tasked with duties and responsibilities that begin almost immediately after death. If you have been named as a Trustee or Executor of someone’s estate, it is important that you understand what’s expected of you. Even with a simple estate, there are several actions a Trustee or Executor must take before the estate can be properly distributed.
This webinar will focus on how to administer an estate in a manner which is thoughtful, deliberate and transparent, including practical tips regarding:
ÞLocating important documents ÞReporting the death ÞCollecting, valuing, and managing assets ÞHandling debts and expenses ÞKeeping the beneficiaries informed ÞFiling the necessary tax returns ÞDistributing assets as the decedent directed
