As we all know (and have usually done ourselves, many a time), people today are changing employers more frequently than ever; with that, there are many ‘old’ 401(k) accounts at former employers that are not only left behind, but quite literally forgotten-about. Most employees typically have little idea on what exactly to do next with these old accounts.
The Four Primary Options for Your Old 401(k)s:
- Option 1: Leave your account where it currently sits and remain in that plan’s investment options
- Option 2: Cash the account out (heavy taxes, penalties and fees usually apply)
- Option 2: Roll the plan into a current employer’s 401(k)
- Option 3: Roll the plan into another retirement account
We advise on many 401(k) plans and can do the same for you, as well as go over all the above-options with you. We’re ready to help you maximize the potential of all these types of assets, wherever they currently reside!
