Q: If a person dies without a will, what happens?
A: An explanation from a CNN Money report: “If you die without one, you cede control to the state where you lived. Its laws will determine who your heirs will be and the state will choose the executor of your estate. While inheritance laws differ from state to state, they generally favor spouses, registered domestic partners and blood relatives as heirs. ... There are, however, some assets that pass to people of your choosing even if you don’t leave a will. If you had a life insurance policy with designated beneficiaries, those people will get those proceeds without state interference. The same is usually true with your retirement accounts. But if you don’t designate beneficiaries, all proceeds will roll into your estate and be distributed according to state rules.”
