In BCG it seems we often fail ERISA testing, and that is notified 10 months after year is over......so best practices for us is to not convert at all, and do it all at once 10 months after the year is over

I’m at Accenture and do it every paycheck. I do an in service withdrawal to Roth IRA

Except I front load the mega backdoor amount for the first few months of paychecks

I try to do it every paycheck (15 days) but realistically do it once a month

My employer’s (VMware ) 401k plan is with Fidelity and offers automated after-tax-to-Roth conversions for the Mega Backdoor (see 19 in PDF below) https://benefits.vmware.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/US-Roth-In-Plan-Conversion-FAQ-3-1-19.pdf

Looking at 401k. Some funds are -10%+ YTD, others are -1% YTD. Does that mean there is more upside to the -10%+ YTD funds? I'm staying away from energy ones, but looking at VEIRX, -17% for the year

Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
