After the passing of a loved one, trying to understand and complete all of the necessary forms and documents required to settle the estate can be a very difficult experience. We take the burden off of you by assisting you in the accurate and timely completion of necessary forms and documents. This also helps in securing the benefits you are entitled to after the passing of a loved one.

For each family, an associate will review over 90 items and choose only those which are necessary and relevant to your situation. Once the required information is received all of the appropriate organizations will be contacted.

The evaluation process includes, but is not limited to:

  • Canada Pension Plan Death Benefit Application
  • Canada Pension Plan Survivors and Children's benefit submission
  • Ontario Driver's License Refund Submission
  • GST Refund Notification Cancellation
  • Transfer of various reward card points
  • CAA card refund
  • Outdoor card refund
  • Costco refund
  • WSIB insurance notification and termination
  • Dormant bank account check
  • Identity Theft Protection

How the Process Works

An associate from our Estate Services Department will call you at a pre-determined day and time to collect the details. Your paperwork is then processed and immediately mailed to you ready for your signature with attached pre-addressed/stamped envelopes. When you receive the package, should you have any questions, our compassionate associates are pleased to guide you through the process. Then, all you have to do is sign where indicated, enclose the required certificates and drop the envelopes in the mail. It’s that convenient.
