When people are sick, it can make you frustrated because you can’t fix it, don’t let that deter you from Don’t mess with me I have a crazy Grandma shirt. I never looked back and thought ‘I spent too much time with them’. Spend as much time you can with your mom, it is the little things in between you will miss. I still get very upset thinking about telling my mom ‘no, don’t worry about it’ when she offered to make breakfast for me, I didn’t know it would be the last time. There will be a lot of last times. The only thing you will wish you had more of is quality/healthy time.

So sorry about Don’t mess with me I have a crazy Grandma shirt, but you need start working quickly. While she is still alive, create a family trust right away so you don’t have to go through probate court. A will is not sufficient to bypass probate court. Spend a couple hundred to put together an trust with you and your brother as trustee. Get her to then put all of her assets into that trust. This last step is very important, if any assets are not in the trust, they will go to probate where random people can come out of the wood works and make claims. And then you will pay thousands in court costs and lawyer fees to get your inheritance.

To answer some of Don’t mess with me I have a crazy Grandma shirt. Taking money out of her account now would be bad because then relatives could sue you for taking money out of her account to deny them of a share of the inheritance (this actually happens, a friend of mine had to fight for 16 month in probate court over this exact thing). However, you also mentioned that she doesn’t have a lot of money, you will probably not have to pay estate tax. Pennsylvania has an inheritance tax (one of 2 states that have this), it’s about 4%. So it’s not a huge amount. However, you can utilize the money in her account prior to her death to take care of her and prepay for certain expenses. This would reduce total size of the inheritance that you would need to pay taxes on.
