Customer Question

Hi, This is a tax law question. I am a divorced mother of three minor children ages 7 and 6, with a set of twins. I am having a hard time who to designate beneficiary of my retirement account. I have no other family in US. I do not want to designate kids
dad beneficiary because he has remarried. I just found out that making my trust beneficiary is a bad idea. Making young children beneficiaries also isnt right. So what exactly should I do?
