When you remarry, you're not only combining residences with your new spouse, you're also merging your finances. If you have children, it may involve some financial-related stress.

An inherited 401(k) is simply a 401(k) that’s been passed on to a beneficiary on the death of the account owner. If the original 401(k) owner is married, the inheritor is usually their spouse. The exception to the rule is if their spouse signs a waiver allowing them to name someone else as their plan beneficiary.
