Estates Administration – Notice to Beneficiaries

Pennsylvania law requires an executor or administrator to send written notice to estate beneficiaries. The purpose of the notice to estate beneficiaries requirement is to inform those who may have a beneficial interest in the estate, but the notice does not guarantee that the beneficiary will receive any money or property.

The executor or administrator must also file a certification with the appropriate PA county Register of Wills office stating that the personal representative of the estate has properly complied with the notice requirement. The notice to estate beneficiaries must identify whether the decedent died with a Will, the PA county where the estate has been opened, the name and address of the personal representative, and where a copy of the Will can be obtained, if applicable. As with any probate and estate administration requirement under PA law, executors and administrators should seek the advice or assistance of an experienced Blue Bell, PA probate lawyer.
