Customer: replied 5 months ago.
my father did not leave a will or a beneficiary for his retirement plan accounts with the office where he worked. Although my father has informed me that he was able to put my name as his beneficiary, but now, his office informed me that he did not leave any. They are requiring me to submit a copy of Letters Testementary issued by the court appointing as executor or administrator for my dad's estate. How should I go about this.

On the California Courts web sites, go to forms and scroll down to Probate-Decedents Estates and choose form DE-111.
