Estate Settlement

Estate Settlement

Select an experienced executor

When the time comes to name an Executor for your estate, you may include a family member or friend. The duties and responsibilities of an Executor, however, are substantial and can be time-consuming. In addition, the inherent legal liabilities can be overwhelming.  With Estate Settlement Services provided by Capitol Federal®, you will be selecting an experienced Executor to handle the duties of settling your estate.  This relieves family members and friends from the labor and liability involved in handling the settlement of your affairs.

Capitol Federal has experienced staff who have handled estates of all sizes. We accept the responsibility involved in coordinating settling efforts with your attorneys and accountants and keep detailed records to effectively manage your estate at the lowest possible cost. By placing these responsibilities in the hands of an estate-settlement specialist, you relieve someone close to you from settling your affairs.

We realize that our responsibilities as your Executor include listening to, and answering questions from, those not familiar with estate settlement procedures. You and your beneficiaries can count on us to provide accurate explanations of all estate and court proceedings and be present every step of the way, as special arrangements are made and carried out.

As your Executor, CapFed will:

  • Report to the court. We present your Will for the approval of the court, gather all the estate assets and provide an inventory for the court.

  • Verify creditor claims. After publishing a notice to creditors concerning your passing, we determine the validity of, and pay, all creditor claims.

  • Settle estate matters. Once your estate’s income tax and estate tax returns are prepared and filed, we sell any property required for the efficient administration of the estate and appear before the court and taxing authorities to resolve any disputes, or for routine approval of estate matters.

  • Distribute assets. When these tasks are completed, we distribute assets to the beneficiaries of your estate.
