Thank you for your follow-up, Ann.I can understand your concerns here. The remaining options here are two-fold. he can also send a formally notarized document to the account manager (whichever company that is holding the account) stating that any further beneficiary changes must be done with the consent and signature of your mother. That will hopefully limit his ability to later reverse the changes. The second would be a private stand-alone notarized agreement made with your mother stating that he agrees to not make changes, and that any subsequent changes if done without her knowledge or consent are deemed to be void. That should then be enough to contest should he go back on his work and make the changes going forward.Good luck.
