Did the beneficiary change to the 401(k) include your wife's signed/notarized waiver of her beneficiary rights? If not, she'll still get the 401(k).

OK. I take it that the IRA change is still valid nonetheless (with both the Roth IRA and the TIRA).

She has recently been selling thousands of dollars of stock and refusing to tell me what she's doing with the money. She says I'll find out at the end of the month though. I think, if it's more scam stuff, and I really need the waiver, I'll do that then.

For some reason, she does all of the trades with broker assistance ($45) and refuses to do them on line ($10) -- says she doesn't know how to do it [I usually do all the trading in our accounts], and she has been having the money wired ($25), instead of electronically deposited in a local bank for free as I told her several times I always do. She seems pretty focused on throwing away as much of our money as possible
