I need to send paperwork stating I am executor of husband's estate for my husband IRA retirement plan as well as death certificate, even though I am the beneficiary. Well I am already having problems with the boys. They didn't help me pay for Dad's funeral, while I am waiting on company to process life insurance and other benefits. The boys are asking questions about three rental houses that my husband had, that I have overseen the last three years. I have attorney that was trying to get Medicaid proved for my husband(it was previously denied) but I think they will only represent Medicaid, I called just them to see if they will file paperwork for me to be administer of husband's estate but haven't heard from them to verify today.
I want to stay ahead of things because I know his boys are being vultures and I want to stay ahead of the process. Actually my husband does not have a lot the three houses value less than $200K total, '99 Nissan, 95 Mercedes (not running) and 94 Dodge truck, (house I live in not included) then it not much in IRA but we were together for 15 years, married only three and I feel entitled to something. I took care of him, these boys were never around until this last trip to hospital we were told my husband would not leave.
Basically my question is what should I be doing first other than waiting to hear back from attorney that is handling the completion of guardianship with judge and the Medicaid.
I feel like I am babbling. I wish that I could just grieve the loss of my husband peacefully but I cant I need to take care of business first.
