New York State Beneficiary Laws

Beneficiaries of a New York estate have the right to:

  • Receive up to date and relevant information about the estate
  • If they are entitled to, they are able to get the entire share of the estate
  • Receive their share of the estate in a timely manner
  • Receive an inventory of the estate within nine months of the executor or administrator being appointed
  • Compel the executor or an administrator to provide a formal judicial accounting
  • Remove an executor or administrator who is believed to be using the estate for their own gain

Protect your legal right to your rightful inheritance!

If you suspect that your beneficiary rights have been compromised for any reason, or you were denied assets promised to you by your loved one before they died, legal action should be undertaken immediately on your behalf. There is a limited time in which to take legal action in these cases and if you fail to do so you could lose your opportunity to get the inheritance that your relative or other party intended for you to receive.

  • During the probate process, a determination regarding the true beneficiaries of an estate will take place.
  • Any person that believes that they may be denied their rightful inheritance must take legal action during this process.
  • There are various issues that could be addressed in these matters, including fraudulent transfers, spousal right of election, or breach of fiduciary duty.
