    My dad just retired at age 70 and wants to know if he should leave his 401k with his company or move it. Where would be the best place to move it?
    Donald, this is a great question and the answer depends on a variety of factors. First, if your dad's account is held in a 401(k) plan with high fund expenses and participant direct charges for account administration, it is probably best for him to consider moving to an IRA. But if the 401(k) plan ...  (more)

    What to look for in a 401(k) record keeper?
    This is a very complicated question. Having been a recordkeeper myself for 10+ years as part of my 20+ year career has given me a huge advantage because I understand what different firms are trying to achieve when servicing their customers and I can often spot where they are strong and where they a...  (more)

    I received a notice from s.s. thatI had a retirement account plan #is 94-1444798-003. Can you give me details?
    When an employee terminates from service with an employer and has participated in the employer's retirement plan, a retirement benefit can accidentally be left behind. If you did not take a distribution when you left employment (or were not eligible for a distribution at that time) the employer must...  (more)

    When is last day to make a contribution to my self employed 401k as an employer and employee for the tax year 2014?
    401(k) plans can be designed to permit several different forms of contributions. Standard salary deferral contributions to the 401(k) plan can only be made during the plan year to which they are related. So if your plan was set up with a January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014 plan year, then you woul...  (more)

    When is last day to make a contribution to my self employed 401k as an employer and employee for the tax year 2014?
    As I stated earlier, you cannot make your 401(k) salary deferral contribution at this point. Under Treasury Regulation 1.401(k)-1(a)(6), sole proprietor or partnership income is treated as becoming currently available to the person receiving the income on the last day of the sole proprietorship's o...  (more)

    I am no longer employed with a company. I am wanting to withdraw the money I put in my 401k plan and want to know how?
    First I want to state that I agree with James. These assets are for your future and should be left invested over the long term and allocated towards your retirement. But if you want to take a distribution from your plan, the process is fairly easy. First contact your plan's recordkeeper and request ...  (more)

    Should my 401K contributions be 2 weeks behind being deposited into my 401K plan?
    The delayed or "late" funding of salary deferrals and participant loan repayments is considered a "prohibited transaction" under ERISA and is one of the Department of Labor"s (DoL) top audit focus areas. The reason is that, once deferrals are "deemed" to be late, they become an extension of credit ...  (more)

    Can my employer "single out" individual employees and not reward them with a bonus contribution to our 401k?
    Kevin, I agree with James that it depends on a variety of factors. First of all, if you're saying that your employer only awards cash bonuses to select people, then that in and of itself is not really a retirement plan issue. A company's compensation policies are separate and distinct from the reti...  (more)
