I think such a question is insensitive and out of line. You really should do your financial planning based on your assets. If you inherit, that would be a windfall. You need to realize that medical expenses could erode assets your father has, and for the time being he has to prepare for that possibility. I'm the primary beneficiary of my parents' trust, but my mother, the surviving trustee, suffered a serious fall in December. Payments to the aides that help her four hours a day cost more than $2400 a month. A million dollars can diminish faster than you might imagine. Plan to provide for yourself.
