Not that I know of, I was not "aware" that such had to be done. We probated the Will and that was all the Probate Clerk told me had to be done. I was not aware that the Primerica IRA account beneficiary was stated to the "Estate". That is now the issue of getting those funds released.
So my options are to create a bank account and have an EIN assigned to it with me as the executor under it and then have the probate amended?
Or, seek legal council.
The will states that she leaves all the rest of her estate to her daughter (me). If that helps at all. I live in Tennessee and my mother lived in Virginia. So I can obtain legal council in Tennessee or would I need to obtain such in Virginia?
