Solo 401k Beneficiary Designation Form – Storage & Non-US Citizen

I am working with my estate planning attorney to set up my will/trusts and have filled out the designated beneficiary form for my self-directed Solo 401k. 


  • Where do I keep the Solo 401k beneficiary election form?  Do I send you a copy or do I just keep it with my trust and will documents?
  • My step-daughter who is one of the beneficiaries is not a US citizen and does not have a US SSN?  Does she need one in order to receive the assets of the trust after I die? 


  1. Please be sure to safeguard a copy with your other estate documents and provide a copy to your estate planning advisor as well as provide us a copy for our records.
  2. You can certainly name a non-US citizen without an SSN as your beneficiary.
