A: I'm sorry for your loss, and that your question remains unanswered in your time of need. This is not my area of practice, but you could try reposting under Probate and Estate Planning if the credit union can't offer guidance in terms of beneficiaries/alternate beneficiaries. Attorneys in those categories would have the most insight into anything involving the estate, wills, and related matters. If you still don't get a response, and your family did not have an attorney involved in drawing up a will or other arrangements, you could look up attorneys in those areas or practice in the Buffalo area under Find-a-Lawyer, or search on your own. Good luck
