Can I transfer stocks from deceased person (with debt) to me (her daughter) without creditors taking it?
My mother passed away and was in possesion of stocks she was awarded as part of a wrongful death suit. The stockes are from Sun Healthcare Group (SUNH) and Sabra Health Care (SBRA).
It is not a large amount of stocks but is something I'd like to transfer to my name if possible. Quarterly dividend checks are sent to my house, but we cannot cash them because they are not in our name.
It is our understanding that my mother had debt at the time of her passing.
Is there a way to transfer these stocks into my name or sell the stocks and collect the money from the sale?
