What Does Administering An Estate Involve?

Put very generally, estate administration is the process of managing and distributing someone’s assets after they die. Some of the steps involved include:

  • Inventorying assets
  • Valuing property
  • Validating the will
  • Contacting beneficiaries
  • Distributing assets
  • Paying creditors
  • Paying tax penalties

Every step has several smaller steps involving paperwork, filing and various regulations. You would be wise to work with attorneys experienced in elder law who can help you make sense of the many things to do.

Probate Vs. Estate Administration: What Is The Difference?

In administering an estate, one person called an executor manages the details distributing a deceased person’s assets and debts. The probate process is similar, but it involves a public court rather than one person. Many estates involve a combination of probate and estate administration.
