I am getting conflicting information on this so I am wondering if anyone has BTDT. My dad passed away recently and he had my brother and I on an insurance policy through his work. We will each be receiving a little over 10K so I am wondering if this will be counted as income or if it will be taxed by the state/fed? My brother and I reside in different states so I'm not sure it that will make a difference.
Im also not sure what I will be doing with the money but I don't want to tie it up in anything long-term. Will it be ok sitting in a savings account or should I be putting it somewhere a bit safer?
