Understanding The Disposition of Assets After A Death

Probate assets that were owned or co-owned by the deceased person may include the following:

  • Bank or investment accounts in the sole name of a decedent.
  • Life insurance policies, annuities, or individual retirement accounts payable to the decedent’s estate.
  • Real estate titled in the sole name of the decedent, or in the name of the decedent and another person as tenants in common.

If the decedent did not have a will, intestate probate may be necessary to determine entitlement to the decedent’s assets and pass them on to the correct heirs. Probate may also be necessary to complete the financial affairs of a decedent. Administration of the decedent’s estate may include dealings with the decedent’s creditors as well as the filing of a final tax return. To prevent trouble, work closely with an experienced probate lawyer.
