Question

My husband died in 1997. Prior to his death, he worked for two different companies. I have no idea whether or not he had a 401K or any type of retirement. He was only 39 when he died, so I really didn''t think much about it. I'm just wondering how I could find out…. Thank you

Answer

Losing a spouse at such a young age is terrible. You will want to contact the prior employer to see if there are any assets in a 401k plan. Please contact the HR department at his prior employment.
