Queen of the Not-Rights
It's not weird at all -- knowing that death is imminent can change someone's perspective. It's quite possible that the medical bills from the cancer treatment caused a financial hardship that your aunt wanted to remedy by leaving it to her husband.Thanks for all the advise. It seems it all boils down to determining if a paper you sign and date st home charging beneficiaries is legally binding or if it needs to be turned into the retirement company to be legal. This is assuming my Aunt actually signed and dated the forms herself. It is suspicious she didn't turn the papers in. The husband is trying to say she got the papers and signed them just a few days before she died of cancer. From what I know, cancer isn't a sudden death. If she actually intended to sign and turn in the papers it is weird she did it right before she was bedridden in hospice.
