Thank you Phil,

I've actually have done exactly what you are suggesting and have learned so much. With $156,000 hospital bill so far and only having Medicare, we all assumed that we owed 20%. I've since gained access to my father's account and the amount that shows "may be billed" is only $1400. Huge relief. I myself am not touching my share of the money and have shared the advice from my accountant/attorney and what I have learned here to my siblings.

We learn so much from the death of a loved one. I know I need to take care of some things in my own life that I didn't think about until my Father's death.

It's nice that there is a place that we can obtain good solid advice from through forums like this from people that have experienced what I am going through.
