re: Rolling over 401K to new job - Sigma
I think if we were in the same room face to face we wouldn't be having this disagreement. It's utterly basic personal finance and I suppose I'm just doing a poor job explaining my point. ...

[quote]If he rolls into a Roth and pays the tax out of pocket he ends up with $86,438.85[/quote] He pays the tax when he rolls into the Roth, which is right now. So he doesn't have $20,000 anymore, and won't end up with $86,438.85. I know you are aware of this. I don't know why you made the c...

re: Rolling over 401K to new job - Sigma
A wider range of investment options is just about the only advantage to a tIRA over a 401k, but if you are an index fund investor, it's mostly a wash. Another potential advantage can be lower fees, although this is very dependent on the situation. 401k loans offer 2 indisputable advantages, abil...
