    I have a rollover account that is under performing. Is it a good idea to move it. Or ride it out?
    It's hard to imagine a fund losing money over the past five years, so I'm wondering what Ivy Fund you have the money invested in at this time. It's an interesting question overall because underperforming can have different meanings (i.e.- underperforming against its peer funds, other investments, t...  (more)

    What are average 401k plan expenses for a plan with assets of 1.7 million? Is my current plan charging me too much?
    When you are talking about 'plan expenses', they can broadly fall into three arenas. Plan administration fees, investment fees, and individual fees. Is it possible to be more specific on which plan expenses you are talking about in the question? I agree with the other advisors that you should con...  (more)

    I want to print out my most recent 401k statement, where would I do this at?
    The odds are that your plan whether it is done by Fidelity Investments or another institution will have the ability to get you an online login to your account. Once you go into the online system, you should have some tab or link to statements and be able to print the statement from there. If not,...  (more)

    As a single mom, how can I budget smartly?
    The first part of budgeting is recognizing that you are now the CEO of your family finances. It will be important to figure out your savings goals for your hopes and dreams as this will actually be the first part of the budgeting process. How much do you need to 'pay yourself first' in order to m...  (more)

    How do I cash out my 401k?
    David, I think the real question you want to be asking yourself is 'why do you want to cash out your 401(k)'? vs. 'should I cash out my 401(k)? I would need to know more about your situation, but you have to ask yourself if this is truly the cheapest or best form of getting money knowing that the 4...  (more)

    How much is in my 401k?
    Quincy,Your best bet if you haven't done it already is to log in through whatever online system is offered by your 401(k) provider. If you haven't done it already you'll need to have your social security number handy (and possibly your account number). If you can't get online, contact benefits or...  (more)

    What percentage of my business revenue should I donate to charities?
    Jason,I own three businesses and it is wonderful that you are thinking about helping out charities. This is especially true if they are local in your city. You can do good and make a great business impact at the same time. We have never put an actual percentage on this number. We have always t...  (more)

    Is Thrift Savings Plan different than 401K ?
    I agree with the panel. It looks and acts very similar to a 401(k) plan, but designed for Government Employees. Unlike most 401(k)'s, the TSP is limited to five options (G,F,C,I, and S) so your overall choices from an investment perspective are limited. This should be taken into consideration whe...  (more)

    I want to borrow to buy a house?
    Not a big fan of this at all. Not only for the reasons mentioned above but you also lose the compounding interest of that money which defeats the purpose of having a 401(k). I would wait on the home purchase if this is the only way you are going to access money to for a down payment. Ultimately,...  (more)

    How can I accurately and easily determine the fees that I am paying for a 401K or an IRA account?
    I wish this was an easy process, but unfortunately the rules that were supposed to make it easy to figure out what you get charged for fees are getting buried in places that make it hard to find.What you want to do is ask your benefits or human resources department where the fees are located if the...  (more)

    I am trying to find out how I can get access to my funds in a 401K plan.
    It's odd today to be getting the runaround by a 401(k) provider. The statement should provide with an 800 number to call which will allow you to talk to a customer service representative or the name/number of the broker who is handling the plan. Either way, this number should allow you to access y...  (more)
