After divorce, don't wait to move money, file home deed

July 29, 2021

Dear Rick:

I got divorced a few years ago and I’m just starting to get my financial house in order. I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with.

My first deals with a 401(k) plan from my ex-husband. At the time of the divorce, I received the 401(k) plan, and it was put in my name. I was told that I should move the money, but I never have. The money has been sitting in cash for the last few years. My first question is what should I do?

My next question deals with savings bonds. In the divorce, I was able to keep savings bonds that I have. Both of my bonds are HH bonds. I bought one in 2001 and the other in 2002. My question is what should I do with these?
