But with regards to the idea of doling out the funds - #1 Talk with some one who knows inheritance law of the jurisdiction where the estate will be. #2 If as executrix the Countess has the authority to decide how to distribute the estate, you might purchase a lifetime annuity. Generally I am totally opposed to annuities, but maybe it makes sense.


I'd bet there's nothing executrix can do, but there may be things parent(s) can do with the will

trouble with annuity in this case--- easy for SIL to sell for lump sum, likely to be less than cost of annuity



AND there may be ways for Countess to get burned if the will is sloppy
