Can I do a direct transfer from my 401k to my husband's 401k if I leave my job or do I have to open an IRA of my own? </>

I doubt it, but even if one could, I wouldn't. Why restrict yourself to those investments offered by a single 401K plan when, in an IRA, you can invest virtually anywhere? In an IRA, you also have the option of converting to a Roth IRA. I believe that 401K money *may* be safer from creditors should you file bankruptcy.

Is there a particular reason why you'd want the money in his 401K plan?
