Does A Personal Representative Get Paid?

Next » « Previous


A Personal Representative is legally entitled to payment for serving.

Ultimately the probate court decides the amount of the fee -- generally by following recommended guidelines in state law. The guidelines usually call for the Personal Representative to receive a percentage of the value of your property. The overall range can be as high as 7% of the value of your estate if your estate is small, decreasing to 1 -- 2% of the value of larger estates.

If your Personal Representative is a close relative or friend, she or he can choose to take less than the statutory fee -- or to waive the fee altogether.
