  • It will go to next of kin. At least thats how it worked when my brother passed almost 7 years ago. We filed and my parents got his return.

  • I would imagine that it would go into the estate. So if you are the only one benefitting from the estate then I guess it would be yours eventually. If there are other beneficiaries, then it would be split up amongst everyone.

  • Sorry to hear about your mom, hopefully she had a will, or signed rights over to someone. Otherwise the state takes it, unless it is in writing, that someone is the beneficiary.

  • Thank you KFree....She didnt have a will, she had a notary sign a paper leaving me her house and car upon her death. I was her only child, does that make me her beneficiary?
