In this case no reason to leave the estate open and good reasons not to in my opinion.
We always just deposited them in my mother's checking account... if we are lucky we get about $100 a year..
Will look into changing them if it is simple... not worried about how long it takes for THEM to do their work, I just do not want to spend a lot of MY time..
BTW, I asked all 5 of my siblings if they wanted the interest.... all said NO...
Wish I could sell it...
BTW, we do not leave open the estate in any other way... just get a check and deposit it... put income on mom's return...
