Peter,

thank you for assistance.

I talked with someone from Vanguard and they said they could do it. So then I called American Enterprise (the current company) and they said that there was absolutely no way they could do such a thing because it is illegal. I then called Vanguard back and talked to a different person. He said that I would have to first get it transferred to my name and then they would put it into an "inherited IRA account." I would have 60 days to complete the transfer to avoid the tax hit. However, I would still have to withdraw the money within 5 years.

You said that most financial institutions would be willing to do this. Could you or anyone else give me the name of one?

Alan
