She had an IRA at Merrill Lynch. The broker there in charge of her account was notified within 2 days including a copy of the death certificate. My sister and I the willed and stated beneficiaries of the plan still cannot get him to release not only the funds but any data on them.

I agree with others that it's past time to make noise, but I suggest you do it in person, assuming this is a public office. Make a big sign that says "I'm not leaving without my money!" and go sit there. You really don't have time, what with your impending move, to waste with this doofus, so don't be at all embarassed.
