My husband passed away last month and he was an older man

Hi, My husband passed away last month and he was an older man that collected social security. I went to the bank a few days ago to close out his account. I gave them a copy of his death certificate. They said since I am not the executor of his estate, I cannot take out his money. I said its ok and just walked away. I received a letter from his bank stating that government funds needed to be returned. I have not touched his money in his account. His social security check was direct deposited into hia account and I cannot touch it. His pension check also came in the mail and I did not attempt to cash it and I have it. What do I do or what can i do?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I went to social security and gave them a copy of his death certificate and to stop his checksJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We always has separate bank accounts

I have a question regarding unpaid medical debts belonging

Hello. I have a question regarding unpaid medical debts belonging to my deceased mother. She suffered a brain hemorrhage and was taken to a local hospital in South Carolina who could not help her, then to a larger hospital in North Carolina, where she passed away the next day. My mother had no medical insurance or anything, and my father, who also has not insurance is now getting all of the medical bills, which are all in my mother's name. My parents live in South Carolina, and my mother had no assets in her name of any kind. Everything is in my father's name. There was no estate to go to probate. We are trying to figure out if he is legally responsible to repay these medical bills, since they are all in her name.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am not sure what you mean. She died on December 19th, 2016. Her death certificate has been created.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that is it...
