Guardian/Conservator Ceasing Upon Death?
Answer by Ken Golliher, BOL Guru Guru Bio
Question: When someone is appointed guardian/conservator of an incapacitated person, does that responsibility cease at the death of the incapacitated person?
Answer: In general, yes, a guardianship/conservatorship would end upon the death of the ward, and the funds would be turned over to a duly appointed representative of the decedent's estate. The specific answer to this question is purely a function of state law. Review the matter with an attorney licensed to practice law in your state.
