Left $24,000 after my grandmas death? Edit with more info!!

Posted by   + Show Post
My grandma recently passed away. She was in an Alzheimer's unit for 5 years prior to her death. Before she started going down hill she told my brother sister cousins and I that she had money for us and it was in her will. My brother is supost to get a larger sum then the rest of us because he was her favorite and the first born great grandson. Well at the funeral I asked my great aunt about the will her and my uncle said there was not a will.



We all became feroius that they would lie about it, I contacted my grandmas lawyer and they do have a will on file for her, I should know every thing Monday.

My aunt was spending my grandmas money before she even died, she bought a new car and did renos to her house with her money, my question is if she spent all the money but there is a will that says my siblings cousin and I are intitled to our money will she have to pay us back?

Also she said for the 5 of us not including my brother there was 120,000 supost to be split which is 24,000 each. That is a lot of money so could she go to prison if she spent it?

Btw my brother is poa but is in prison, also jut so you can see where I am coming from my aunt uncle and grandma sued my great grandma ( the on who just passed) for there fathers money after he passed and she was 80 at the time, it broke her heart.
She wrote them all out of the will after this so I do not think for one second that they wouldn't all jump in and take what is ours that our grandma wanted us to have.

Unless she was on medi-cal, the money is probably far less. At the long term care facility I work at, a private pay's persons cost is 7,500 a month.... And we are one of the cheaper ones in the area. That only covers a shared room/ food/ care. Things like shaving cream, hygiene products etc are bought separately.

I am sorry about your grandmother but I have a feeling that all of the money is gone and that there is nothing that you can do :( Keep us updated.

I don't think she's a whore.

I just think it was in poor taste to confront someone about a will while they are busy trying to bury their mother.

Op is obviously young, and insensitive.


Quoting Rain2Rinse:

Ugh, this totally made me laugh. You have this heartfelt response above. And then....."btw, you tacky whore!!" Lmao

Quoting FooLynRoo:

btw totally tacky to ask about her mothers will at the funeral.. I don't blame her for telling you there isn't one.

If you were legally named, she would have no power over notification.

 I am sure they weren't pleasant.

Quoting ninjakids:

They were the ones I dreaded the most lol

Quoting ninjakids:

I worked for John Hancock... If she was the poa & was taking care of her expenses etc. legally she can fight and recieve the money, especially if said aunt paid for the funeral. Ive seen it constant times. Also if the money was named in the will but the bene in life insurance was different it goes to the bene regardless of the will.

 This part is correct.

I think the whole family is tacky.  Sounds like the funeral was an episode of Springer.

Quoting My3beautys:

Yes because she done spent money that wasnt hers so I'm sure she will be spending more now that grandmas gone, and she hit my aunt at the funeral so I don't see it as that tacky the way she behaved was tacky and she told us after she left she would no longer speak to our family anymore
Quoting coleysmama:

Really? You asked at the funeral?

A friend who cannot post for herself said

if her grandmother mentioned to her about the money and she had alzheimers, and was NOT lucid, then there is a possibility that there may not be any money left to her. and a lawyer can't tell her how much money is left in the will over the phone if she isn't power of attorney.
