The death of a relative or close friend is a difficult time even before you start thinking about dealing with the deceased’s financial affairs. Most people will never have been involved with the administration of an estate previously and can become confused by a host of legal terms and procedural matters. If you’ve been named or appointed as Executor, you may need to resolve many issues like life insurance policies; beneficiaries of RRSPs, RRIFs or TFSAs; jointly held assets; and much more. Acting as an Executor can be a very tough job; many people who accept this role don’t fully understand all the duties, responsibilities and personal liabilities that come with it. If there is no will, things can become even more complicated.
