First of all if you are an heir get yourself an atty

Second , if there is an administrator of the decedents estate someone has to petition the court or be appointed by the court to be an administrator

The money in an estate account when there is no will must be used to pay any outstanding debts and expenses of the estate. The administrator , court and estate atty should determine if there are any relatives entitled to the estate, spouses, children,siblings parents etc. If there are none the monies go to the government unfortunately . That's why its so important to have at the very least a valid an current will. Better yet get a good estate plan in place way before you get to this point . If there is no will any monies due to the decedent arepayable ( and possibly taxable ) to the estate . That can be very costly to the estate especially in the area of retirement accts etc as they can end up getting taxed at least twice .It sounds like you are a relative , if you are , or are the only one you may be entitled to the proceeds of the estate--GET A GOOD ESTATE LAWYER IF YOU AREENTITLED_ ASK FRIENDS/RELATIVES FOR A REPUTABLE ONE
