<<By use of the term "IRA Stretch" I am going to assume you want them to be able to take distributions over their life expectancies upon the eventual demise of both you and your spouse. >>

The original question was likely based upon my new article in the FAQ regarding "stretch" IRAs. If you are interested in the article, you can certainly find it in the Taxes FAQ area.

And, as previously noted, you must have the "approval" of the IRA administrator in order to change your beneficiary designations and add any "contingent" beneficiaries.
