What to do if the last named beneficiary dies without meeting state requirements for succession?
Question Details: They did not survive the deceased by the 120 hours as directed by statute. How then does the estate get divided? The named beneficiary has 1 surviving daughter and 1 deceased son who left 2 children. There are 4, first cousins in line for the estate. Does the dead son's children each get a share or do they split their mother's? I am faced with the question of 4 ways or 5 ways to include the deceased brother's children splitting a share.
