Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Generally, proceeds of the life insurance and IRA would be distributed to beneficiary outside of the probate estate proceedings and would not be subject to creditor's claims or outstanding debts of the deceased credit card debtor.
Any credit card debt would be paid from the estate assets, such as any real estate or other assets which have to be probated through the probate court.
I wish you the best of luck!
