My mother was killed this summer in a car wreak and left approx 30k. I have had the small ira changed to show me as the beneficiary. I have also had an annuity set up from the teacher's retirement to a ira styled the same.

After reading 8/4/00 An Inherited IRA I thought I had it made. Mother was 74 took minimum distrubutions on single recalc method. As I read this article I could put the money in my name and hold it taking distributions over my life expencency and be very aggressive with the money to see what I could do with it.

PROBLEM: Scott, Brown, or Fidelity will not take this account because Mother did not have the original account set up with them.

Ideas or thoughts on what to do. I do not need the money now so I do not want a distribution.

Does any one know of a discount broker that will take this account?
