However, one should carefully consider whether reliance on the state protection creates a false sense of security. If a parent resides in Florida or Arizona but the child inherits the parent's IRA and resides in a state that does not specifically protect inherited IRAs ... the inherited IRA could be subject to the claims of creditors in bankruptcy."
