Q&A 

What happens if I inherit a traditional 401(k) from a parent? 

If you are a named beneficiary of a deceased 401(k) account owner, typically you have the option to leave the inherited 401(k) account in the plan. However, most nonspouse beneficiaries must take the full payout from the inherited 401(k) within 10 years from the account owner’s death. And, if the deceased was taking required minimum distributions each year, the beneficiary must continue taking them. In addition, distributions from an inherited 401(k) are typically included in a beneficiary’s regular taxable income. To understand all your options for inheriting a traditional 401(k) and the potential tax consequences, it’s important to consult with a tax advisor or financial planner.  

Tools & Techniques  

Along with the prices of almost everything else, car insurance rates are up nearly 5% in 2022, according to approved rate filing data from S&P Global Market Intelligence. Staying aware of your coverage needs and understanding your policy can help you make sure you have the right financial protection for your lifestyle and budget. Talk to your agent about developing a strategy to lower your premium to a more acceptable level. For example, you may be able to trim your bill substantially if you sign up for a safe driver program through your insurer. Typically, this requires monitoring your driving habits through your smartphone or an in-car device.
