Inherited IRA Not Protected from Creditors in Florida Second DCA case rules

In the case of Robertson v. Deeb 16 So.3d 936 (FL. Dist. Ct. App. 2 DCA 2009) the court held that an inherited IRA does not have the same creditor protection that an individual’s IRA by concluding that F.S. 222.21(2)(a) “does not apply to inherited IRAs because the plain language of that section references only the original ‘fund or account’ and the tax consequences of inherited IRAs render them completely separate funds or accounts.”
