Beneficiary changes a tricky business when divorce is added to equation

Q: My wife and I are in the process of divorce. We have three grown children. In addition to our home and various accounts, each of us has a pension and IRAs. Can I change the beneficiary of my IRA and 401(k) to our children before the divorce? A: Unless there is a court order in effect that prevents you from doing so, each of you can change the beneficiaries without the consent or knowledge of the other of your IRAs, insurance policies, wills and annuities, either before or after divorce. However, when it comes to pensions and 401(k)s which are governed by the federal law called Employee Retirement Income Security Act, you cannot remove your spouse as beneficiary without her written consent before divorce which undoubtedly she will not give.

The drive, in its 11th year, involves competitions among students as they solicit donations from faculty, staff and the community. Last year, about 100 families received food. The students are seeking canned goods, nonperishable foods, money, gift certificates and food preparation items. Donations should be taken to Green Hall on the KU campus by 5 p.m. Nov. 16. Baskets will be assembled from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Nov. 17. __________________________ Accident: Overland Park resident dies in collision near St. Louis St. Louis A Kansas man died when he rear-ended a vehicle driven by a man who had stopped to move a desk that was in the roadway, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. Richard J. Plodzien, 54, of Overland Park, Kan., died Saturday morning at St. John’s Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur. The patrol said James R. Crew, 63, had stopped on Interstate 270 near the junction with Interstate 70 to move a desk that had fallen from another vehicle. Plodzien struck Crew’s vehicle as Crew was pulling back into traffic, according to the patrol. __________________________ In remembrance: Former military chaplain, prisoner of war to be honored Fort Riley He’s already memorialized with a bronze statue, and a Wichita high school, Kapaun Mount Carmel, is named after him. Now Fort Riley will rededicate its post chapel to honor Emil Kapaun, a military chaplain who lost his life in a North Korean prison camp. The Custer Hill Chapel will be renamed Kapaun Chapel in ceremonies Monday afternoon at the Kansas Army post. Kapaun resisted the indoctrination efforts of his captors and suffered regular beatings for ministering to his fellow soldiers. He often gave what little food he had to the sick and wounded and would sneak from hut to hut to hold prayer services, said Lt. Col. David Kenehan, current chaplain of Fort Riley’s 24th Infantry Division. Military records indicated that after 202 days in captivity, Kapaun suffered a blood clot in his leg and was denied medicine. He died May 23, 1951. Kapaun’s life and service are an example for all those in the military, Kenehan said.
