Can a debt collector claim funds from an I-Bond coowned by the deceased and myself and then passed on to me as sole owner upon the formers death?
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am JudgeLaw and I will do whatever I can to answer your question and provide you excellent service.

No, if you had right of survivorship it would not be part of the probate estate and, therefore, not subject to creditor claims of the estate.

I hope this is helpful. If you have more follow up questions please let me know. It is never a problem.

Thank you.
