Changing Jobs? Here Are Your Options for Your 401(k)

With the average person now holding 11.7 jobs over the course of his or her career, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there is a good chance that retirement plan assets get left behind.

If you have ever wondered how best to take your 401(k) assets with you when you switch employers, tune in to this week’s episode of The Money Guy Show.

In this week’s show, we not only cover how to take your retirement plan assets with you when you make a career move, but we also address ways to recover retirement plan assets you may have abandoned, and how to maximize the opportunities you have with your employer-sponsored 401(k) retirement plans.

  • Understand the unique benefits of 401(k) plans
  • The three things you can do with those previous employer retirement plans
  • Ways to identify and recover abandoned retirement plan assets
