Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
You would have to sign your legal name here to a disclaimer of interest.Otherwise you choose to ignore them here and do nothing.They likely would pay inheritance share into probate court and if unclaimed it passes to the state after time has passed.
If you decide you want to disclaim here you have to sing your legal name in front of notary.
Model Qualified Disclaimer Form
I,________________________________________________ (DISCLAIMANT), in
accordance with the provisions of Section 2518 of the Internal Revenue Code and
Section ___________ of the State of ______________________________ (INSERT
NAME OF APPLICABLE LAW), do hereby irrevocably disclaim my interest in any and
all property (OR A PARTIAL DISCLAIMER - ENTER THE PARTIAL AMOUNT, IF
APPLICABLE) passing under Section ____ of the_
(NAME OF QUALIFIED PLAN) of___________________________________________
(NAME OF PARTICIPANT), deceased on ____________________________________
(DATE OF DEATH), said disclaimed property being more particularly described as
(DESCRIPTION OF QUALIFIED PLAN AND DEATH BENEFIT)
(DISCLAIMANT OR DISCLAIMANT’S LEGAL
THE STATE OF ________________
COUNTY OF __________________
This instrument was acknowledged
before me on the _______ day of
_____________, 20___ by (DISCLAIMANT OR DISCLAIMANT’S LEGAL REPRESENTATIVE).
Notary Public in and for the
State of ____________________
I received this disclaimer on the ______ day of _____________________________, 20__
Otherwise you ignore them and they keep your share and it escheats to the state usually after five years or so if unclaimed.
I gave you the form if you want to disclaim.Honestly I think that might be the best way to resolve this.It is very likely they already know you did a name change here since they found you.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.
