A: If your father had a Last Will and Testament when he died, it will designate who of his heirs will receive his property at death. It may be that your step mother was your father's Will's sole beneficiary of all those items your described. An annuity account generally also names a beneficiary in case of death and a contingent beneficiary. You will need to see the annuity contract to determine who your father designated as the beneficiaries.
A: It depends on how everything was held. You will need to consult with an attorney before I can answer those questions.
