Understanding Your 401k and IRA
When it comes to deciding what to do with your 401k from your former employer, you have several options. Leaving it at your old employer can seem fine. Too often we hear about employees who simply lost contact or failed to keep up with their former companies’ retirement plan changes. You would hate to lose money simply because you didn’t have time to read an important email you meant to read later.
While you can always cash out your 401k, this is the worst option by far. Taxes and penalties will quickly eat away your hard-earned money!
