Answer: Legal advice, which includes recommended actions, is beyond the scope of AZLawHelp.  However, according to A.R.S. § 14-6101, a bank account is a nonprobate transfer if the bank account had a payable on death designation.   According to A.R.S. § 14-6223 (2), If the bank account included a payable on death designation, then that account may be distributed to the beneficiaries upon proof of death to the financial institution.
