I am sorry for your loss.

Did you file a Terminal Return with the CRA? Do you know if the estate will owe the CRA money for taxes?

Is there an estate account?

Is there a living spouse?

My mom passed away and I am co-executor of her will with her
Hi my mom passed away and I am co-executor of her will with her second husband. My mom was receiving a portion of my Dad's pension and now those cheques are written out to her estate. Her second husband has been getting them. The pension board (Ontario Teachers) says that my Dad will have to continue to pay my mom's husband for the rest of his life. This doesn't seem right. The pension board so far has just made the cheques out to her estate. When my mom's husband asks them to make the cheques out to him directly they say only if my Dad agrees. That alone sounds to me like there is room for my Dad to get that money to stop flowing to my mom's husband "for the rest of his life" … read more
