I often respond to questions related to my firm's practice areas…wills, trusts, estate planning, business law, and real estate...on Avvo.com. I am sharing some of these answers on my blog for the benefit of my readers and clients. Below is a recent question that I responded to on Avvo: Question: Can a husband collect an IRA from his deceased wife if she was under state medical assistance without the state taking it? A man passed away and left his sister an IRA. She lived long
Below is a recent question I answered on Avvo: Asker Question: Our great aunt named my dad as a beneficiary to IRAs and Tax Annuities, along with other beneficiaries, I am wondering if there is a way to find out if she used the term "per stirpes" so my dads portion would go to his kids, my dad passed away before our great aunt, she did change her will after his death to give his part of her estate to his surviving children, but not sure she changed her IRAs and Tax Annuities.
