that they are getting an inheritance? It seems like it makes them feel entitled and like it is money they already have. If people get an inheritance I think it should be a surprise not something that is promised to them their whole adult life. Anyone have any experience with this?
My SO and his siblings have been told about their inheritance and they talk about it alot. They are now expecting that money...it bugs me sooooo bad!!!

My dad has made my brothers and I aware of the fact that he has accounts that go straight to us in the event of his death. He tells us this for we NEED TO KNOW this. If he were to suddenly pass I need to know EVERYONE I need to contact to get ALL AFFAIRS in order. He has made sure we have contact names and numbers to people who handle his accounts.My MIL had life insurance. Her kids always KNEW this. When she did pass last year my DH and his siblings KNEW who to CONTACT, for their mom prepared them. It is important to be PREPARED, even for an inheritance I would imagine.

My MIL used to make a big deal bout how she needed to be able to leave something for her kids, there's 6 of them. I finally told my in-laws we didn't want it after they were gone and would very much prefer to watch them enjoy spending our share now. Just another black mark on my record with the sisters, two of which can't wait for their share of the "money".
My Grandmother died a couple of weeks before my Dad, and my mom told us that they had planned to split all of her money between the 3 of us kids but that since my dad died at the same time she was keeping the money to make sure she would have enough. I am happy that my mom is now taken care of and since it was money I never had I don't miss it.
