Often-overlooked steps can cause difficulties during and after the succession process, as well as leaving undiscovered benefits unclaimed. Additionally, you want to protect your loved one's estate from fraud and identity theft, as well as ensuring any legal responsibilities have been fulfilled. Our report will cover the important details that need to be addressed in order to successfully settle an estate.
