My (patriotic) father bought savings bonds all his life; he is the primary owner of all the bonds and his heirs are co-owners (one co-owner per bond). He passed with a pour-over will and revocable trust; I am the successor trustee and also have a Durable Power of Atty.
One heir was formally disinherited in March of 2011. Since then we have been cashing out this heirs bonds; I have a Treasuring Department Power of Atty to cash his bonds; I recently sent them to a Treasury Direct account for ease of cashing. The plans were to cash 50% of the balance in 2012 and 50% in 2013 completing the disenheritance. I have recent emails from the 'disiherited heir' saying that he has 'no interest in 'his' money'; but he refuses to sign a 'change-of-owner-ship' form. Is there any way I cash these Bonds?
