Estate Question

I'm one of 13 beneficiaries of my uncle's estate. Last week there was a distribution that was sent via certified mail with return receipt but with no insurance. Everyone else got their check but mine never arrived. I called the executor and after several days got him to see if the check had been cashed. Luckily it had not, payment was stopped, and a new check will be issued.

My question is what if the check had been cashed? Whose responsibility would this have been? Would I just have been out the money unless I could recover it? Or would it have been up to the executor?

The executor's bank probably would be the stuckee.

No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA
