IRS issues private letter ruling on disclaimer executed by an estate

In PLR 201125009, IRS has privately ruled that a disclaimer made by a decedent’s estate of her deceased husband’s retirement benefits (including benefits that would have been payable under a disclaimer trust set up by his will) was a qualified disclaimer under Code Sec. 2518 of those benefits that were not yet accepted. As a result, the disclaimed benefits passed outright to the couple’s children.
