How do you distribute money from an estate?

If you are the executor or administrator of an estate, you will be responsible for distributing the assets of the estate according to the terms of the will. The first step is to pay any debts and taxes that are owed by the estate. Once those debts have been paid, you then follow the instructions of the will and distribute the money amongst the named beneficiaries.
