Death, Wills and Shiat

Cliffs:

My sister has been living with her boyfriend for the past 6 years and they are indeed life partners but not married...yet anyway. BF has been ill with ups and downs, for pretty much the past 3 years.

He was a stock broker that opted for early retirement because of his disability. He collects disability from the state and also a pension and has a 401(k) plan as well as a life insurance policy (for 35K) that my sister is the beneficiary of.

He has a house that is upside down; he owes more than it's worth. My guess is to the tune of about 50K.

He has cash in various accounts, totally about 15K.

He has virtually no living family.

He is dying.

Complications from diabetes (toe removal and sepsis) led to heavy duty antibiotics that his damaged liver couldn't process, to make a long story short.

He's been in constant pain for the past 2+months because his body cannot process pain meds. On Saturday (before my training session) doctors said that his liver isn't functioning and there is no way to get it to improve.

What he can do for now is take strong laxatives that will work in place of his liver, while he gets his affairs in order, sees friends, etc. They said his only hope would have been a liver transplant but he is too ill for that surgery.

So yesterday he asked me to help him get his will made. He also asked my sister to marry him so that she'd be taken care of.

Is marrying him (assuming his debt as well as his assets) her best move or is it better to just be a beneficiary of his will?

I called BF's lawyer but he is out of town until Wednesday but I will be talking to him then.

Any help, assistance, thoughts and advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
