In June 2018, 20 months after Mom passed away, we received our CRA Clearance and distributed the estate to the beneficiaries. Our job was done. By the end of that summer, I had packed up the files and put them into storage.
Out of the blue, this year in March we received a letter from a New York company advising us that they had discovered an unclaimed asset for our Dad’s estate. Of course, because this seemed odd, we decided we needed to verify that this was not some sort of scam.
And here we are – thinking about the responsibility we carry in “the job we didn’t apply for”. More to come!
