    Default How Does an Estate Recover Unclaimed Money

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Connecticut

    My father passed away 3 years ago, he left no Will. My brother was appointed the executor of his estate and everything was settled in probate court about 1 1/2yr. later. Just recently found there was Unclaimed Money on a state issued list for my Father. The party (ins. company) holding the funds will not give me any idea as to the amount (will it be worth my while to even pursue it?)which is owed to my Dad's estate. They state I must once again go thru probate court and incure all the fees again. Is there anyway to bypass the probate court this time? My relationship with my brother is non-existant and wonder if I could apply to be the executor this time? Is it hard to do? Is it expensive?

    before you get into this, realize that whatever money is there must be distributed equally to all the heirs of your fathers estate.

    I was an executor and pursued it on behalf of the estate. The proceeds were distributed to the heirs. Most states will not disclose the amount until a legitimate claim is filed.

    The administrator of the estate can make a claim on behalf of the estate. If the estate has been closed, it would likely be necessary to reopen the estate in order for the administrator to again have that authority.
