What if the plan participant remarries?

Kevin from Irvine, CA asks, "What if the plan participant remarries?"

Pension Evaluators® at Troyan Inc.® answers, "If the divorced Participant remarries before retiring, the survivor benefit usually goes to the new spouse unless the QDRO from the prior divorce requires that the ex-spouse be treated as the participant’s surviving spouse. If the ex-spouse must be treated as a surviving spouse, then the new spouse will not receive survivor benefits when the plan participant dies. Generally, the only way for an ex-spouse to receive survivor benefits is through a QDRO."
