Maybe a dumb question but if someone vests in a pension are they still able to rollover a lump sum into an IRA? Or is it too late? Have a client who keeps blowing me off to get documentation...CONT

If he separates from service he should be able to roll it into an IRA. First make sure you accurately run a projection on the income it would produce if he let it sat and took it at retirement, but if it’s a small amount it’ll most likely be better to invest it in an Ira. Also make sure that if you roll it over you have them sign something saying that they don’t intend to return to work within the pension system. Is it a public pension? Edit: this isn’t a dumb question :)

I keep asking for to review his options bc he thinks the pension is the only option. Maybe it is but I don’t have enough experience with old school pensions to know whether to keep asking so we can review his options. It’s a very small amount but I like to be very thorough and want to make sure we talk about it if he has more than one option

23 and have maxed out 401k, Roth IRA, HSA both years so far. Pretty conflicted on this, everyone says this is a must but how do I even know I will live past 60. I much rather save money I can use to retire early than fund my post retirement years where I may not even have the aptitude or health to go on adventures and live free... Can someone explain?

I never did anything to set up my 401k. Now I’ve resigned and I’m going back to India soon. I noticed recently on my pay stub that some amount is being withheld towards 401k anyway. How do I access the amount and get it back so that I can transfer it to India?
