Notifications Probated Estates In Texas
As an executor
There are many people and organizations you’ll need to notify about the estate owner’s death, some of which are time-sensitive. For example, you usually have up to thirty days after the death to notify the court and present any will.
Typical notifications include:
- Brokerage accounts
- Businesses and partnerships
- Close friends and family
- County probate court
- Credit card companies
- Credit reporting agencies
- Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
- Extended circle of acquaintances
- Employer & any pension providers
- IRAs and other beneficiary accounts
- Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
- Leasing companies
- Life insurance companies
- Medical providers
- Membership organizations
- Newspaper and other subscriptions
- Post office
- Service providers
- Social Security Administration (SSA)
- Utility companies
- Veterans Affairs (VA)
- Voter registry
While some notifications can be made informally, others may require specific methods of contact, ranging from phone calls to notarized letters to public notices published in newspapers.
It’s critical for you to follow the creditor notification timelines in your state. Failure to follow these statutes may result in the estate owing money it shouldn’t have, which could result in you being held personally responsible for those debts.
