Can I take a loan against my 401k??
A 401K loan can be a great option for you - if and only if you expect to remain with that same employer for the next 5 years. As others have explained above, that is your payback window. Should you terminate employment with that employer, voluntarily or not, the loan becomes due. If you cannot pa...  (more)

How do I make sure that I don't owe taxes on a disbursement taken from my defined pension plan and rolled into an IRA?
The reply above is exactly right. Essentially this is a matter of paperwork - that the sending firm has coded the distribution as a non-taxable rollover, and that the receiving firm has received it this way. If you effected this transaction in 2014 you should shortly have the 1099R to verify, if ...  (more)

RMDs - What's the purpose?
You've hit the nail on the head in answering your own question.

The amount you withdraw will become immediately taxable at ordinary income rates - not the lower capital gains rates. This usually isn't what you want. ...  (more)

I am fully vested in ESOP with a former employer.
A few more considerations to research:1) Is there a liquid market for this stock? Could you have a trade executed without delay on an exchange?2) If the answer to #1 is yes, then can you roll the stock out to an individual brokerage account? There are some favorable tax considerations here: You...  (more)

Can I get a loan or get a lump sum buy out on my monthly payments I receive now on my retirement.
Couldn't agree more with my colleagues. Think of it this way: you're looking into selling a stream of payments that you own. Is anyone going to pay you full value? Of course not - you're in a tight spot, and you'll have to take a significant haircut on the amount received. Firms that deal in pu...  (more)
