Letters Testamentary are your proof that you are the person designated and authorized to act on behalf of the estate. You will need to present Letters Testamentary to persons holding the assets of the estate so that they know you are the representative for the estate and that you are entitled to take possession of the estate assets. Banks, brokerage firms, title companies and insurance companies are the types of entities that may request Letters Testamentary.
