Claim deadlines

The Senate Civil Law Committee heard Sen. Holdman’s SB 65 on claim deadlines. This bill removes provisions barring certain claims filed against a decedent’s estate more than nine months after the date of the decedent’s death. The amendment, adopted by consent, changes the deadline to either nine months or after two months have passed from the date notice is given to the creditor, whichever is later. The amended bill passed 8-1.
