If your 401k balance is 300K, 1.5% is $4,500 which is more than the match. I wonder what kind of 401k balance the CFO has. CFO is new and so is t...

Re: Co-worker made a dumb mistake with 401k transfer???

She could have pulled it all out, paid the penalty, and spent it on shoes... now that would be dumb. :D It may not have been the best choice, but all is not lost either. You would have to check into the in-service transfers and if they're allowed... probably not. If not, pick the lowest ER fund pro...
