Sec. 420. Disposition of effects of deceased persons; unclaimed

property

-STATUTE-

(a) Disposition of effects of deceased persons

The Director of a facility of the Retirement Home shall safeguard

and dispose of the estate and personal effects of deceased

residents, including effects delivered to such facility under

sections 4712(f) and 9712(f) of title 10, and shall ensure the

following:

(1) A will or other instrument of a testamentary nature

involving property rights executed by a resident shall be

promptly delivered, upon the death of the resident, to the proper

court of record.

(2) If a resident dies intestate and the heirs or legal

representative of the deceased cannot be immediately ascertained,

the Director shall retain all property left by the decedent for a

three-year period beginning on the date of the death. If

entitlement to such property is established to the satisfaction

of the Director at any time during the three-year period, the

Director shall distribute the decedent's property, in equal

pro-rata shares when multiple beneficiaries have been identified,

to the highest following categories of identified survivors

(listed in the order of precedence indicated):

(A) The surviving spouse or legal representative.

(B) The children of the deceased.

(C) The parents of the deceased.

(D) The siblings of the deceased.

(E) The next-of-kin of the deceased.

(b) Sale of effects

(1)(A) If the disposition of the estate of a resident of the

Retirement Home cannot be accomplished under subsection (a)(2) of

this section or if a resident dies testate and the nominated

fiduciary, legatees, or heirs of the resident cannot be immediately

ascertained, the entirety of the deceased resident's domiciliary

estate and the entirety of any ancillary estate that is unclaimed

at the end of the three-year period beginning on the date of the

death of the resident shall escheat to the Retirement Home.

(B) Upon the sale of any such unclaimed estate property, the

proceeds of the sale shall be deposited in the Armed Forces

Retirement Home Trust Fund.

(C) If a personal representative or other fiduciary is appointed

to administer a deceased resident's estate and the administration

is completed before the end of such three-year period, the balance

of the entire net proceeds of the estate, less expenses, shall be

deposited directly in the Retirement Home Trust Fund.(!1) The heirs

or legatees of the deceased resident may file a claim made with the

Secretary of Defense to reclaim such proceeds. A determination of

the claim by the Secretary shall be subject to judicial review

exclusively by the United States Court of Federal Claims.

(2)(A) The Director of a facility of the Retirement Home may

designate an attorney who is a full-time officer or employee of the

United States or a member of the Armed Forces on active duty to

serve as attorney or agent for the facility in any probate

proceeding in which the Retirement Home may have a legal interest

as nominated fiduciary, testamentary legatee, escheat legatee, or

in any other capacity.

(B) An attorney designated under this paragraph may, in the

domiciliary jurisdiction of the deceased resident and in any

ancillary jurisdiction, petition for appointment as fiduciary. The

attorney shall have priority over any petitioners (other than the

deceased resident's nominated fiduciary, named legatees, or heirs)

to serve as fiduciary. In a probate proceeding in which the heirs

of an intestate deceased resident cannot be located and in a

probate proceeding in which the nominated fiduciary, legatees, or

heirs of a testate deceased resident cannot be located, the

attorney shall be appointed as the fiduciary of the deceased

resident's estate.

(3) The designation of an employee or representative of a

facility of the Retirement Home as personal representative of the

estate of a resident of the Retirement Home or as a legatee under

the will or codicil of the resident shall not disqualify an

employee or staff member of that facility from serving as a

competent witness to a will or codicil of the resident.

(4) After the end of the three-year period beginning on the date

of the death of a resident of a facility, the Director of the

facility shall dispose of all property of the deceased resident

that is not otherwise disposed of under this subsection, including

personal effects such as decorations, medals, and citations to

which a right has not been established under subsection (a) of this

section. Disposal may be made within the discretion of the Director

by -

(A) retaining such property or effects for the facility;

(B) offering such items to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, a

State, another military home, a museum, or any other institution

having an interest in such items; or

(C) destroying any items determined by the Director to be

valueless.

(c) Transfer of proceeds to Fund

The net proceeds received by the Directors from the sale of

effects under subsection (b) of this section shall be deposited in

the Fund.

(d) Subsequent claim

(1) A claim for the net proceeds of the sale under subsection (b)

of this section of the effects of a deceased may be filed with the

Secretary of Defense at any time within six years after the death

of the deceased, for action under section 2771 of title 10.

(2) A claim referred to in paragraph (1) may not be considered by

a court or the Secretary unless the claim is filed within the time

period prescribed in such paragraph.

(3) A claim allowed by the Secretary under paragraph (1) shall be

certified to the Secretary of the Treasury for payment from the

Fund in the amount found due, including any interest relating to

the amount. No claim may be allowed or paid in excess of the net

proceeds of the estate deposited in the Fund under subsection (c)

of this section plus interest.

(e) Unclaimed property

In the case of property delivered to the Retirement Home under

section 2575 of title 10, the Director of the facility shall

deliver the property to the owner, the heirs or next of kin of the

owner, or the legal representative of the owner, if a right to the

property is established to the satisfaction of the Director of the

facility within two years after the delivery.
