I am 18 about to go to college and my father accidentally ended up with my 529 plan in his name (as opposed to my mother owning it) during their divorce. The amount in the 529 would cover my cost of attendance for 4 years at my university, but he is planning on only using half of it and forcing my... Read more »
If your father and mother are divorced, and if there is a written agreement (or court order) detailing the division of marital assets, it is highly unlikely that your father "accidentally ended up with your 529 plan in his name."
Indeed, it is much more likely that the two parties to the...Read more »
FYI: All banks in Pennsylvania--and all other states--are very highly regulated; banks do not just keep someone's SSI deposit without very good reason--like to cover an overdraft. If you are still unhappy, contact the appropriate state or federal regulator supervising your bank.
Other than complain to the local police about this theft, there is little else your friend can do--except stop giving out her banking information to anyone--including her friends of friends of friends...

If the bank account is in her deceased husband's name, then she may need to open up his estate. The bank probably will not give her the funds until she begins probate.

Can any instrument be negotiated by two or more parties to be considered tender to pay off a debt between them, or do they have to follow that law, or code on what has to be used as the legal tender? thank you!
