OTHER SERVICES: Estate Protection DNA Testing GenQuest   understands   that   preserving   the   legacy   of   yourself   or   a   loved   one   after   they   have passed   is   important.   DNA   testing   for   the   protection   of   an   estate   or   inheritance   is   simple   and provides families with the opportunity to protect their loved ones’ assets after they have passed. WHAT IS AN ESTATE PROTECTION DNA TEST? These   DNA   tests   are   conducted   to   protect   the   interests   of   an   estate   owner   and   the   individuals inheriting   said   estate   or   benefits.   GenQuest   obtains   a   DNA   profile   of   the   individual   whose   estate is   being   passed   on,   which   is   saved   for   future   use   to   verify   a   potential   relationship   of   another individual   to   the   owner   of   an   estate   in   the   event   a   potential   heir   makes   a   claim.   Testing   can   be conducted   before   or   after   an   individual   is   deceased   if   there   is   any   concern   about   the   security   of the individual’s assets. WHY PURSUE THIS TESTING? Keeping    the    DNA    profile    of    a    deceased    loved    one    can    be    useful    for    a    variety    of    reasons, including: o Estate settlements o Social security benefits o Life insurance benefits o Tribal enrollment benefits o Inheritance for a previously unconfirmed relative o To add or remove a father’s name from a birth  certificate o Verify an alleged relationship to an individual making a claim to the deceased’s  estate In   the   event   the   estate   owner   is   not   available   to   provide   a   sample   (buried,   cremated,   or   is     similarly   inaccessible),   a   test   could   potentially   be   done   between   the   claimant   and   one   of   the     deceased’s closest living relatives. Contact GenQuest for further details. PRICING DNA   testing   can   be   performed   on   living   and   deceased   individuals   (up   to   seven   days   post- mortem)   by   a   standard   buccal   swab   collection   for   $135   per   sample.   Samples   from   any   living participant    will    incur    an    additional    $75    collection    fee.    A    secondary    sample    is    required    for deceased   individuals   in   the   event   there   is   an   issue   with   the   buccal   swab   samples.   Backup   samples include   nail   clippings   or   a   blood   card.   Testing   can   also   be   performed   on   previously   collected samples   from   an   autopsy   or   medical   examination,   such   as   a   blood   card   or   blood   draw,   in   the event   the   deceased   was   buried   or   cremated   before   DNA   testing   was   pursued.   Nonstandard samples incur additional testing fees and should be discussed with GenQuest. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Samples    from    the    deceased    must    be    obtained    by    a    neutral    third    party    such    as    a    Medical      Examiner,   coroner,   or   funeral   home   employee.   The   next   of   kin   must   sign   consent   to   test   the deceased,   and   it   is   recommended   to   submit   a   death   certificate   with   the   sample.   Samples   must   be sent directly to GenQuest from the ME, coroner, or funeral home to be court admissible. Samples   from   any   living   participant   must   also   be   collected   by   a   neutral   third   party.   Collections will be coordinated by GenQuest. GenQuest   will   retain   a   hardcopy   of   the   DNA   profile   and   the   DNA   sample   for   five   years,   free   of     charge.   After   five   years   all   physical   documents   will   be   destroyed,   but   a   digital   copy   of   the   chain of   custody   and   profile   will   be   retained   by   GenQuest.   You   can   submit   a   written   request   for   the hardcopy   documents   and   sample   to   be   retained   longer.   The   profile,   supporting   documents,   and sample   can   be   accessed   by   any   authorized   party   or   law   enforcement   agencies   if   and   when   they are   needed.   An   authorized   party   must   consent   to   the   comparison   of   a   deceased’s   profile   to   a   new participant. DNA   profiles   obtained   by   GenQuest   are   not   shared   on   any   national   database.   All   records   are     destroyed after five years unless otherwise requested.
