Re: FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early)

I'm 25 years old. I have been consistently contributing to my 401k and Roth IRA over my entire professional career (4 years total so far). However, with FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) being a major goal in my life I have started to question if investing in my 401K and Roth IRA makes any...

Re: 401K plan after leaving company

It sounds more like the OP can’t contribute to a Roth IRA because he or she is fully retired and has no wage income. OP is that right? Do you not expect to have any wage income from now until your death (ie are you fully retiring)? No, the amount of income I make is greater than the max amount allo...

Re: 401K plan after leaving company

I recently left a company where I had a 401K. The new company I work for does not have a 401k. I was going to roll the 401k into my Roth IRA but I am going to make more than the $137,000 limit that prevents you from contributing any money to the Roth IRA. My base salary is 108k, I get a monthly car...

Re: 401K plan after leaving company

There is no income limit on Roth rollovers (rollovers are not contributions), but if this is a regular, pre-tax 401K then the entire amount of the Roth rollover will be taxable income in the year you make the rollover. The two possible courses of action are: 1. Leave the 401K where it is for now. Y...
