The Estate Account experience

Standard

With Death Certificate in hand, I retrieved my husband’s final paycheck from his employer. Then I went directly to the bank, thinking that I would be able to open an Estate Account and deposit it. Silly me.  I already had requested and received an Employer ID Number (form SS-4) from the IRS <very quickly and efficiently, I might add>, so….I presented EIN, death certificate and check…but it didn’t work.

I need a Letter of Testimentary from…the Clerk of Court, I think…this is in my lawyer’s hands. We’ll see where this leads.
