Just to clarify:
1) I posted this answer instead of using a "disagree/neutral" on the earlier posting that suggests "owed amounts", which could hardly be subject of a legacy or will.
2) "Claim" is proposed here as meaning:
1) v. to make a demand for money, for property, or for enforcement of a right provided by law. 2) n. the making of a demand (asserting a claim) for money due, for property, from damages or for enforcement of a right. If such a demand is not honored, it may result in a lawsuit. In order to enforce a right against a government agency (ranging for damages from a negligent bus driver to a shortage in payroll) a claim must be filed first. If rejected or ignored by the government, it is lawsuit time.
