First, they have to have an official death certificate, or the missing person has to be declared legally dead -- and then the notification is put into the system. I'm sure that since there has been an active investigation into Adam's car accident -- there was no death certificate yet.
And they're just finding what they think is Adam's "body" this week. First there will be a process of officially recording the death with the town clerk. Adam isn't legally dead until that's done.
Furthermore, after the death is registered with the town clerk, it might take a month or two before it is put into any notification system. So there would be still some time before any bankers or tax officials notice anything amiss.
I believe there is a relatively new service out there -- and it works like this: Whenever somebody dies, their social security number is put into a system that is transmitted to banks in some way -- so that they are automatically notified. But it still takes a few months to process. I'm sure I have ALL the details wrong. I'm sure large numbers of social security numbers aren't transmitted like that. It would be a secured system. At any rate, there is some sort of system in place that provides such a service. However it's relatively new, and not every bank has that yet.
