The successor trustee (ST) of a decedent's living trust (LT) liquidated IRA accounts and deposited funds into a checking account; my understanding is that this will disqualify the distribution as an inherited IRA rollover. We have been making inquiries of the ST on various matters and she has suddenly gone silent over the last 3 weeks. If she has realized this is indeed an error, what is her duty to inform beneficiaries of this?
BTW, we are seeking a litigation attorney at this time, but geographic distance (CT/CA) is hindering our efforts. We are unsure of what kind of communication, if any, we should be having with ST in the absence of legal counsel.
