401(K) Weaknesses

In today's world, there are lots of choices about where and how to save for retirement. Often times, people utilize a 401(K) option offered by their employer. 401(K)'s can be very powerful since they have much higher contribution limits than IRA accounts. Be careful though, 401(K)'s are not necessarily the end all be all and they sometimes have possible weaknesses. On this week's podcast, we discuss some of the pros and cons of saving in a 401(K) and some of the things to be aware of and watch out for when saving in this kind of account. Saving for retirement is an important part of your financial future, and we're here to help you make wise decisions as you travel along the Retirement Roadmap.
