Letters of Administration
When qualified you will be issued “Letters of Administration”. These are the documents which give you full power and authority to act as representative of the estate. If you or someone else had Power of Attorney that power died with the decedent. The appointment of an Executor or Administrator replaces the Power of Attorney. The Letters of Administration will allow you access to the decedent’s monies and establish an estate account, endorse and deposit checks, pay bills, transfer titles, transfer stock, etc. It is important you maintain accurate financial records. Keep copies of all checks, receipts, deposit records, bank statements, etc.
