First of all, courts do NOT referee marital spats, so unless you have filed a divorce there is not an issue courts will address, and in a divorce he will get as much info as he wants. Second, sure he can. As a spouse, he has significant legal interests in those funds. Some or all are a marital asset he could seek in a divorce, or on your death, and in some plans there are restrictions on you having someone besides him as a beneficiary, depending on the plan. Because of various banking and other laws he may or may not be able to get some information, but with proper id and in certain situations he can get some information.
