  •  For deseased family members who were Coop members, any settlement proceeds of this lawsuit can only be sent to the Estate of the deseased member and not directly to you. In order for the estate of the deseased member to receive any proceeds from this settlement, the Estate must be currently opened with the clerk of Superior Court in the county in which your family member resided. In many cases, you must send to the QSF Trustee a copy of the current Letters of Administration or Letters Testamentary issued by the Clerk of Superior Court.
  • No documentation other than these Letters will be accepted by the Trustee as proof that an Estate is currently open.
  • A copy of a death certificate will not be accepted for a deseased family member.
  • It is very important for your claim number to be listed on any copy of documents that is submitted to the Trustee.
