Sorry if this was posted before. But I’m new to investing so can everyone share their 401K retirement allocation % of their portfolio? I currently have Vanguard (ACN) and have no idea where to start and references would be so nice! TIA

First time leaving firms - not sure what to do with my 401k. Should I keep it as it is, transfer to an IRA, or a Roth IRA.

If it is the latter, I know Roth IRA has a 6k limit but my 401k has ~17k. Will it exceed the limit and if so, what should I do?

22 here, not too familiar with the process. Thanks!

So I’m only contributing to 401k enough to get employer match, and I’m saving an additional ~20% and putting 90% of that into my vanguard mutual funds. Reasoning is that I don’t want to lock away all that money maxing out 401k. Have 3 months expenses liquid in a savings account. Is this really dumb? Essentially trading tax for the option of actually using my money.

Change my mind: my parents and my in laws both had to take substantial amounts out of their 401k/ cash them out later in life. They spent it all and didn't save money for related taxes (had to borrow money to pay taxes) . Because of their irresponsibility, I'm keeping half of my contributions to a roth401k and half in traditional, assuming I may be in a similar situation later in life (but hoping not!) and not wanting to forget about taxes and be bit in the butt
