The inherited IRA is reported under the beneficiary's SSN, not the decedent's.

That may very well be the way it is reported, but my brokerage insisted on having Dad's SS# to set it up, even after my telling him it had already been cancelled due to death, as well as requiring his DOB and DOD. This guy does a ton of these, so hopefully he has it right. They also have my SS#, but they already had that so I didn't need to give it to them a second time.
