Hello,

A family friend has just passed away and his wife must now makes some financial decisions. They are both past 70 ½ years old and they were withdrawing from each of their IRA's.

Should the wife keep withdrawing from the IRA?

Should/Can the IRA be put into their Living Trust?

How can she avoid Estate Tax on the IRA?
