already making plans on how to spend the life insurance policy money...and he wasn't even dead yet???

i just don't know how to take this. My uncle just passed away yesterday. He has been in ICU for a few weeks and we werent expecting him to live but my grandma told me last night that for the last week his daughter (before he even died) was already planning on how to spend the money he was leaving her...looking at new cars, etc.. is that not selfish and seem like she is waiting for him to die so she can get her paws on money or is that normal?

  • It depends on how old she is. Teens can be developmentally self centered. It may help her cope. Better that than depression.

  • For an adult, it's not. And she may be in for a shock after the hospital and funeral bills are settled. And an even bigger one if any kind of trust was set up.

  • If you only have one possession and it's money and that part is the force of life that's left, than that is the life he was leaving, perhaps he was always focusing on who got the money and how they'd have that , source, that one thing to connect from him to the offspring, well, a few times in our own family we were in the boat of who and where would the money go to, and it was much neater to just deal with it and blink quickly than to argue or dispute over it.

  • that is really sad. i'm sorry for your loss. you'd think she'd want to grieve her loss a little. i don't know what to say about that.

  • unfortunately it happens more than we like to think. Maybe she'll by a Toyota. It would serve her right

  • Pretty sick...and I hope she doesn't get her hopes up for getting it any time soon. My dad passed this past July. He left me a butt load of money, and I still don't have it. These things take forever. I would give up every penny to have him back just one more day.
