Ownership Category for Inherited IRA (FDIC)
We have an IRA beneficiary who has inherited an IRA. She is a non-spouse beneficiary of the original IRA, and has named her spouse and daughter as beneficiaries of her inherited IRA (payout account). When calculating FDIC insurance, what ownership category applies to this inherited IRA, is it considered a "certain retirement account" or a revocable trust account?
