9th Circuit Rules that ERISA/Code Survivor Protections Do Not Carry Over to an IRA
ERISA Lawyer Blog Link to more items from this source
[Guidance Overview]
Jan. 26, 2010
Excerpt: Comment: It has long been thought that the ERISA/Code automatic surviving spouse rules do not carry over (or otherwise apply) to an IRA, with respect to amounts transferred to the IRA from a qualified retirement plan (such as a 401(k) plan), or with respect to any other amounts. Thus, the Court's decision is not a surprise. I like the use of the interpleader to resolve disputes over funds and ownership. Allowing the Court to decide the dispute lets the bank or other financial institution avoid paying amounts out of the IRA (or any plan or arrangement at issue) to the wrong individual, and later having to pay the right individual those same amounts out of its own pocket.
