How Much Money Should You Leave in Your Will For the Executor?

The amount of money that you should leave for an executor can vary depending on the size of the estate and your particular needs. The more assets that you pass on to heirs, the higher the executor fee you can expect to receive. However, there are some cases where you would be better off foregoing the compensation.

Making a Will

When making a will, you should create a list of all the property that you want to pass on to your beneficiaries. This can include items that are held in a trust or jointly with another person. The best way to ensure your estate is passed on in a smooth fashion is to hire a lawyer.


An executor is a person with a power of attorney to handle the estate of the deceased. They have the legal responsibility to administer the estate, pay the debts, and collect the remaining property. They are responsible for communicating with the heirs and loved ones.

Duties of an Executor

An executor’s job is a lot of work. They need to handle tax returns, bills, and real estate. They may also have to handle the distribution of the estate’s remaining assets. They can be paid an hourly rate, or they can be paid a percentage of the gross value of the estate.


It is also possible to have a family member to act as the executor. A family member can be a spouse or a minor child. In addition, the representative should report to the beneficiaries.
