I have multiple joint accounts with my elderly aunt. Upon her death I and my brother are to equally share any inheritance. Should I change how the accounts are held and how?

Your aunt needs to do proper estate planning. You do not advise exactly how title to the accounts is held. If they are as joint tenants, they all go to you. If the are held in various other forms other types of administration may be necessary depending on the value of the accounts and the exact title terms.
