Hubbys father died oct 2010 and then husband died June 2011. We never got the money officially. Hubby had 16K in credit card debt i didnt know about at all. I do not plan on paying it. Father's estate planner moved the money to my hubbys estate - STILL AN IRA - i had to create a small estate in order to get the money moved (5K) - i am the executor.
Do i need to pay the creditor - or since its an ira am i protected?
I am not named as a beneficiary for this money -- since he inheirited it.
