Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

If you were to refuse the inheritance, then it wouldn't have to be reported to SS and end up terminating your benefits. You can just sign a statement saying that you are disclaiming any interest in the inheritance, now and forever, have it notarized, and then give it to the executor of the estate and that would protect your benefits.
