Every year, convert 12k into Roth. Claim 12k standard deduction when filing taxes so you pay zero tax. (Because converting 401k into Roth will trigger a tax event). Then let it grow in Roth tax free. After 59.5 age, withdraw entire amount tax free.

One more factor into play is currency valuation, US has appreciated by 4% yoy for last 10 years, if we consider that then parking in a roth IRA makes sense.

Convert it into Roth IRA and keep it in US till you are retiring. Grow the money in dollar incase you don’t need this money till you hit 62

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
