My mom nominated me as executrix of her will. The majority of her assets (POD account, IRA, annuity) have beneficiary (me). All that remains in her estate is $21,000 in a bank account, a life insurance policy on my sibling with a cash value of approximately $4,000, and personal possessions totaling at most $5,000. Her will left $25,000 to my sibling, and the remainder of her estate to me (she made me the beneficiary on the other assets listed above).
Do I need to file the will with the Superior Court in California?
Can the sibling who was left $25,000 claim that from the bank and insurance company with an affidavit, or should I transfer those funds to an estate account and pay him from that?
Do I need to do inventory of personal possessions since she left the remainder of her estate to me?
