Glad to be here. I'll do bullets to make it simple:
*My ex husband (of 13 years) died recently and left his 401K to his elderly parents and our minor child (designated as primary beneficiaries).
*I was remarried two years ago. We have no children, and I have custody of my ex's child.
*the DD says that I get coverture fraction of the 401K (of my portion - 13 years of marriage).
Question: I know that technically I will be able to have my child's portion (33%) for her needs, but can I claim any more than that? Will his parents get their 67% share as primary beneficiaries, or does their portion belong to me?
Any and all help is very welcome.
thanks so much.
