My future employer uses Fidelity for 401k and my current employer uses vangaurd. What are my options to consolidate 401k account. I prefer Vangaurd and wish I could stick to it. I also have Roth IRA account and brokerage account with Vangaurd too. What will happen to my Roth IRA as my adjusted gross income will be more than the limit set for Roth IRA. Can I still keep the account for 2021 or I need to close it ?

Yes, you can keep it. You would not be able to contribute to it any further as long as your AGI stays above the threshold.

Back door roth IRA - read about it. Also Fidelity has several new zero fee index funds AND other index funds that beat Vanguards on expenses. Vanguard gets lots of hype here but other firms have competing products that have the same or better features (lower fees than vanguard, track the same index, less initial investment than vanguard). And the competitors have far superior websites. I continue to be amazed by the cult that surrounds Vanguard as you can do better.

At the end of the day an index fund is an index fund. If the expenses are with one or two percent of a percent, i don’t care if it is fidelity or vanguard etf. I am at fidelity so only use their mutual funds.

Your Ira has nothing to do with your 401k so that is not an issue. You do not need to close the Ira but can’t contribute to it directly. Look into the backdoor Roth if you have no traditional Ira balance. As far as the 401k, you need to check the old plan documents to see if you can leave the balance there. Many would argue it is easier to roll it to the new one for simplicity. You could also roll into a Ira. However as I mentioned above you may not want to if it is traditional 401k

If you want them consolidated the only option is to roll vanguard 401k into Fidelity 401k. If you’re ok with only keeping current 401j at Fidelity you can possibly leave the vanguard 401k alone (there may be fees) or open a vanguard personal IRA and roll the old vanguard 401k into the IRA. As long as Roth IRA funds were rollover from 401k or IRA contributions while under the income max you’re fine. No need to close. It continues to grow tax free and you can roll future Roth 401k funds into it if change employers again.

It seems that common advice after getting your emergency fund, is to max out 401k, then IRA. But 401k limits are relatively high at $19500.

I feel like if I aim to max out 401k limits, I’ll never touch my IRA.

My wife and I would like to retire at age 50 (or earlier). We’re in our early 30s. We’ve been maxing out 401ks and IRAs for years and started contributing 20k a year into a taxable account to start filling the gap since we can’t access 401k until 55. At what point should we be reducing 401k/IRAs and redirecting to the taxable account? Otherwise our income balloons late in life. Curious how others are managing this.
