Can you use your retirement money to buy a house? (First time buyer) -- I have a DCPP Pension plan with my employer. (CANADA).

I believe DCPP can only be withdrawn below 10k. After that it’s untouchable. If you leave your company, it will get transferred to a LIRA account from which you cannot withdraw for the purposes of purchasing a home.

Short version: no, a DCPP is not the same as an. RRSP

I didn’t complete a W-9 last year for my ESPP and was getting charged 24% each time I sold shares last year (about 4 times). Towards the end of the year I competed the W-9 and taxes weren’t being taken out when I sold. The Firm that handles the ESPP said that I should get some of the money back because I was overtaxed, but I’m wondering how to go about this. Is this something that I should include in my tax return?

Starting my own firm and was wondering what bank is the best for iolta? Also any affordable software, resources, etc that you recommend or don’t recommend for the beginning? Thank you!

Can someone help me understand how backdoor Roth works in my situation?

I contribute the $19.5K max to a 401K each year. Would backdoor Roth be (A) the ability to roll $6K of that $19.5K into a Roth? or (B) an incremental $6K that I could contribute to a separate IRA then backdoor into a Roth?

Asked another way, does backdoor Roth allow me to actually contribute $25.5K each year, or does it just allow $6K of my $19.5K contribution to build in a Roth?

Thanks!

I’m 32 yo and have been doing an annual rebalancing of retirement portfolio in December. Last year I increased bond allocation from 10% to 20%. Turned out bonds were the least bad part of my portfolio (still lost 14%).

Hearing a lot that the setup for bonds looks better in 2023 given 1) slowing Fed rate hikes and 2) likelihood of recession. Thoughts on increasing bond allocation? Part of me realizes I’m probably over complicating this and better off just buying equities and holding.
