my mother passed and i am the beneficiary of her estate but I'm unable to pay for her funeral
costs to bury her. she has an ira but i can't get funds from that until a death certificate is
prepared. is there anyway around that?
You should be able to work around it with a funeral home to make the arrangement and then get the funds released. Call me I would be happy to set up an estate to help care for it.
My colleague is correct. Most funeral homes understand situations such as these and will help you with the arrangements and will wait for payment until these funds are released, provided you do so as soon as possible.
