How does a Cash Balance Plan differ from a 401(k)?
Cash Balance plans and 401(k)'s are completely different animals. Without getting into all of the technical details, a Cash Balance Plan is much more like a traditional pension (defined BENEFIT plan).

Getting divorced. When can you get your spouses ESOP money?
An ESOP is like most other retirement plans. It can be separated with the use of a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). Typically a QDRO can be drafted and executed once the divorce is finalized (per the laws of your state). However, it's important to know the rules of the ESOP. Every plan is...  (more)

Is it possible to borrow money from my 401K and pay it back monthly over time?
You need to find out from your Plan Administrator or HR Department if your plan actually allows policy loans. Also, something to keep in mind is that if you take out a loan, and then leave your employer for ANY reasons, the loan then becomes fully due immediately....  (more)

I no longer work for lowes. How do I withdraw my 401k?
You need to call the custodian of the plan (you should be able to find the phone number on a recent statement) and request how to withdraw or rollover your funds.Alternatively, contact the Lowes' HR department to request direction or documentation on the procedure.

Cash out my inactive 401k-?
It's hard to say for sure. If it is the same employer, then you might not have the option to withdraw funds. If you have been notified that the Plan is folding, then you may be able to remove funds.The best thing to do is contact your HR department for further information on the status if the plan....  (more)

What is your monthly mortgage payment? If you buy two points for a rate of 5 percent, how much would you save monthly?
In the most simple terms, you are paying $3200 in points in exchange for $800 less interest per year (although this savings will drop each year as the principle balance of your mortgage drops).I am assuming 5.50% vs. 5.00% on $160,000 ($200,000 less 20% down), no PMI insurance.So in very rough ter...  (more)

Is ok if I contribute 2% traditional 401k and 6% royh 401k? Is this a good mix or should I be contributing more?
I have to agree with Peter, generally. In my years working with clients, most seem to fall into lower tax brackets in retirement versus their working years.However, depending on your situation, it might make sense to use a Roth. If you are in a very low tax bracket right now (15% or lower), and ant...  (more)

Can I get a loan or get a lump sum buy out on my monthly payments I receive now on my retirement.
Any lump sum offer you receive from a buyout firm will likely have terms that are very favorable to THEM, and not to you. They are in the business of making a profit, and they will be profiting directly from your income source.As was mentioned above, unless this is a very unique situation, it is re...  (more)

Safe Harbor 401k and Highly Compensated Employees?
You said the "application says...that you are a highly compensated employee".It is possible that you were given an application intended for the company's HCE's.
