My husbands left all his estate to myself his wife in his Will. He also named me as the sole beneficiary of his pension. However, they are not releasing the funds to me until they have asked questions to his estranged adult children. Is this normal practise?

May I add, what do you think the questions they would ask then are? I’m in touch sporadically with his younger son who’s 24 by text but he’s not answered when I’ve asked for his address. He wouldn’t give his Father his address either?!

I am very sorry to hear of your situation  and also sorry on the padding of your husband.

I can see the question , thank you.

Can you kindly  clarify what probate ruled ?

Customer: replied 17 days ago.
What do you mean by what probate ruled? The estate isn’t large enough to go through probate

What is the addition amount to speak on the telephone please?

Yes it is automated .I can still assist you via email.

I don’t want to switch to telephone thank you

Noted thank you.

It is a very normal process , the questions are just ground checks on your relationship  with the deceased and to ensure they are aware of the deceased estates decision .

Please kindly  feel free to ask if you need me to clarify my answer.

All the best
