My husband passed away and left some Home Depot Non-Quailified stock options. I am trying to have them transfered into my name before they expire on 4/28/2012. Merrill Lynch requests a Certified Order of Distribution, and I don't know what that means. Aslo my husband left a will that states if he dies, the stocks are to be liquidated and distributed between his son, and myself,his wife. My husband's son died quite a few years ago and the will was not updated. To my knowlage, I was his only living relative at time of death. What is it I need to do, or send to Merrill Lynch to have this taken care of? Time is running out.
