I am having an issue with one of my brothers. I was the beneficiary on our mother's insurance policy. Her one Prudential stock was a TOD to me, and I was the JTWROS on her annuities and other stocks. I was also on both her checking account and savings account since I had to pay her bills. Our mother had a will and I am the Personal Representative of the will. She had no property. I did go to her attorney to get the original will. He said the will did not have to go through probate
since all the money was in my name now so there is nothing to go through probate. I plan to honor my mother's will and divide the monies with my two remaining siblings. I have paid all the doctor, funeral, and other fees from the funds passed on to me. I have read and been told that since all the monies were passed on to me I do not need to share the estate
with my siblings in the will. Beneficiary, joint ownership, and transfer on death overrides a will. Is that true.
JA: OK. The Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Estate Lawyer should know?
Customer: Well, the brother that is giving me trouble had taken advantage of our mother for years. She paid his electric bill, car insurance, life insurance, gave him personal loans for years and years because he has not held a steady job. My other brother and I have worked very hard all of our lives and never asked our parents for anything. In fact we did for them like taking them on vacation with us, out to dinner, etc.
