In Florida, if someone has a bank safe-deposit box, how can the box be accessed after the person dies?

The answer depends on whether the deceased person had another person as an authorized co-lessee (or "owner") of the box and whether that person has a key. If not, resort to the probate court may be needed.

Under Florida probate law, is there a statute of limitations for a claim against the decedent or the decedent's estate?

In addition to the time frame set forth in Florida's non-claim statute (contained in Section 733.702 of Florida Statutes), the Florida Probate Code establishes a two-year statute of limitations for asserting claims against the decedent and the decedent's probate estate.
