Aug 25, 2015Across the country, 401(k) plan fees dropped by an average of 10 basis points between 2009 and 2012, according to a study released last year by BrightScope Inc., a company that rates 401(k) plans, and the Investment Company Institute. Some industry experts say the fee reductions are the natural evolution of an industry that has been in existence only since the 1980s.
Aug 24, 2015Sometimes your 401(k) can be one sick puppy. These mongrels can eat up your money in bad mutual funds. There’s a number of things you can do to see if you need to make some decisions.

Volunteering within our community is an important facet of our mission.
Feeding America San Diego is committed to solving hunger in our community and informing the public on the issues of food insecurity, nutrition, and poverty. We fight hunger locally by working hand-in-hand with partner agencies, local school districts, corporate partners and a network of volunteers to serve 56,000 children, families and seniors in need each week.
