Claiming my dead brother’s funds from Jamaica NHT account

My brother died leaving lots of money with NHT. I need to get it, but he left no will. Can you tell me how.
Claudia Marsh

Dear Claudia,
We posed this question to an NHT representative ‘Please explain the procedures to collect sums in an account for one’s relative who is now deceased but contributed to NHT with you?’

They responded:
Attached (*See list below) are the required documents to process refund application, where person died without leaving a WILL. However, please note the following:

    once the decease has children under the age 18, then the application has to be submitted through the Administrator’s General Department;
    the relationship between the decease and the claimant must be clearly established (this is depending on who is applying);
    if the decease has no other surviving relative other than the claimant, then he/she needs to complete a Deed of Indemnity form attached.

Declaration of claimant
Form of Particulars
Consent Declaration
Deceased Checklist
Declaration of Identity
Statutory Declaration (40 years)
Deed of Indenmity
