I meant trustee of the IRA semantically. Is that the correct terminology for a non-spouse inheritor, because I thought so. Correct me, but if inheriting, say a brother's IRA upon his death, the other sibling could never technically own the IRA (in his own name) but remains "trustee" in perpetuity, am I right. Even though it basically amounts to ownership, all intents and purposes.

If you kind folks advice above is correct, on a hypothetical scenario, say a 30 year old brother dies and his 25 year old inherits his IRA (let's say traditional or Roth for that matter), then the 25 year old could or must start taking distributions on it then; I assumed he would then wait until 59 1/2 himself?
