My understanding is that we need to follow the instructions on the bequest document, trust, etc to a tee.  Therefore, I guess it really depends on the individual document.
That helpful huh? lol

  Subject: cemetery bequest clarification

  OK who is the expert on cemeteries because I am a little puzzled on how to invest the bequest money. 

  I have a 18 month CD maturing which is all bequest money, I understand that I can withdraw and use the

  interest earned and reinvest the original benefit? The interest earned can be use for mowing/maintence on the cemeteries -correct?

  What and when can the bequest money be used?  




  . Thank you in advance
