QDRO Payments to Alternate Payee Before and After Death of Account Holder

"My best friend's husband recently passed away. QDRO with ex-wife as AP. Should the ex have been paid out her 50% of QDRO at the time of divorce 9 years ago? This is for pension and 401K only. Life insurance death benefit is in lieu of remaining balance of alimony upon death (12% only of life insurance policy). Now that he is dead, what is my friend entitled to, especially if QDRO hasn't been yet paid to the ex?"

Top Heavy Minimum and Business Unit Sale

"A client is an adopting employer in an MEP. The employer is Top Heavy for 2020 and the key employees are contributing. The employer says it will be selling a business unit this year and terminating non-key and possibly key employees. How does this impact the 2020 Top Heavy minimum? Are those employees simply deemed as terminated prior to the end of the year and not allocated the Top Heavy minimum? Or, would the minimum be calculated on compensation until the sale for those employees?"
