Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you. What does the will state will happen to estate assets if the person they are left to does not accept them? There should be a clause on the "All the rest, residue, and remainder"

If a beneficiary will not accept an inheritance:

"First, no one is REQUIRED to accept an inheritance. Most heirs or beneficiaries are free to reject the bequest. When a beneficiary rejects a bequest it is technically, or legally, referred to as a "disclaimer." This is the legal equivalent of simply saying "I don't want it." One crucial rule about rejecting an inheritance is that the person who rejects the bequest cannot direct where it then goes. Legally, it will pass as if the person rejecting it died before you. Thus, who it passes to depends upon what your estate planning documents, such as a will, trust, or beneficiary form, say will happen if the primary named beneficiary is not living." https://uniqueestatelaw.com/lawyer/2015/02/16/Estate-Planning/What-Happens-If-Your-Heir-Doesnt-Want-What-You-Are-Giving_bl17155.htm
