n. a document issued by the court clerk which states the authority of the executor of an estate of a person who has died. It is issued during probate of the estate as soon as the court approves the appointment of the executor named in the will and the executor files a security bond if one is necessary (most well-drafted wills waive the need for a bond). Certified copies of the letters are often required by banks and other financial institutions, the federal government, stock transfer agents or other courts before transfer of money or assets to the executor of the estate. See also: administrator probate

    I am widowed and retired from full time employment but like to keep working. This year I will be testing for national certification as a Medical Interpreter Spanish- English. I am studying to learn the Russian language and in a year or so plan to spend some time in Russia to complete the study and gain proficiency. I am a volunteer Interpreter with a free clinic and do a few other things that keep me busy.
