Finance Quick Answers
My father just died in Missouri. He was on full Social Security benefits but we have no info on what to do from here...Bank accounts, life policy, no info at all. How can we gain access using his social security number and death certificates to help pay for his funeral?
I am very sorry to hear of your father's death. Here is the link to the Missouri Bar Association: http://www.mobar.org/. Look up the Missouri Probate Division, which approves the disposition of estates, under publications for the general public. I think it will answer many of your questions.
If you decide you need an attorney, the Bar also has a link to the Missouri Lawyer Referral Service brochure, which explains the service and gives suggestions for locating an appropriate attorney.
