Inheritance Money

Inheritance money refers to cash and financial holdings gifted to heirs through a Will, trust or probate. When money and valuable assets are inherited, they must be processed through the court system to ensure the estate is distributed according to probate laws. An exception to this rule is when inheritance money is protected through trusts.

During probate, inheritance money is generally transferred to an estate bank account. All assets owned by the decedent must be inventoried and appraised. Financial accounts are frozen to ensure outstanding debts, taxes, liens and judgments are paid. Upon approval from the judge, final distribution can be made to named beneficiaries
