We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???

I’ve worked at the same big 3 boutique since I was a clerk. I’m a NEP now. I work in a mid to small market town. One of the partners in one of our larger offices wants me to move to their market. I have a great relationship with this partner and they are telling me they are planning to retire in 5 years. They have a sizable book of business. I have two small kids, my wife is an attorney who practices in state court. I’ll never be more than a well-regarded service partner if I stay. Would you go?

Moving out of the US for 5-6 years, does it make sense to keep the 401k as is or withdraw it and pay the fine and penalty as it could still be used as a 25-30% down payment for a house ? The balance is under 70k right now. I will be moving back after 5-6 years.

A host of states are passing laws to make sure schools do not teach Critical Race Theory; however, how will this work if the same state already has legislation on their books requiring Holocaust education? The Holocaust is an example of systemic racism and falls under the definition of CRT which posits that racism is not merely the product of individual bias or prejudice, but also something embedded in legal systems and policies. Teaching the Holocaust is, by default teaching CRT. Thoughts?
