    Any idea how long it takes the office of social protection to determine if it has any claims against the will of a deceased person. In this particular case the deceased person didn't claim any social welfare during his lifetime. Surely with a persons pps no. the results should be processed immediately. My solicitor says that he sent a clearance request to the office of sp in December 2017 and is still awaiting a response.

    It shouldn't take that long and afollow up call in event of delay will get a response.
    I would like to see the date on the solicitors correspondence before I believe him
