All claims against the decedent or his estate are barred unless presented within sixty (60) days of the first publication of the notice required by KTC 3.15.440 or receipt of actual notice of decedent’s death, whichever is sooner, except that the time limitations for presenting claims under this chapter do not accrue to the benefit of any liability or casualty insurer. Claims against the decedent or the decedent’s marital community that can be fully satisfied by applicable insurance coverage or proceeds need not be presented within sixty (60) days of the date of first publication of the notice to creditors, but the amount of recovery on any claim not so presented cannot exceed the amount of the insurance. The claims may at any time be presented as provided in KTC 3.15.470, subject to the otherwise relevant statutes of limitations, and do not constitute a cloud, lien, or encumbrance upon the title to the decedent’s probate or nonprobate assets nor delay or prevent the conclusion of probate proceedings or the transfer or distribution of assets of the estate. This section does not serve to extend any otherwise relevant statutes of limitations. [Res. 06-R-53 § (C)(35.08.030), 5/3/2006.]
