  • It can be pretty tacky but you can ask your aunt to make you sole beneficary You should be realistic can tell her otherwise you have to take care of yourself which includes going to college and/or getting a better job and moving out. It might sound a little rough but taking care of yourself is your primary responsibility, not taking care of you great aunt but she can move into a nuring home.
