Wow!! You still have something IN a 401K? I would have thought they would have bled you out by now.
It's worth it for THEM to keep you in it, if you have anything left. They obviously haven't fished with you yet.
I suppose it would matter in WHAT your 401K is invested, and by whom. I don't want to know, or anything, just saying.
I would look for something that exposed you to less risk. It's a given that you would probably have to take it in the shorts to do anything else with
it, but I think it's definitely worth doing some research.
It's hard to have a lot of confidence in the economy for me right now. Others not so much.
When I look around, it's hard to have confidence in ANYTHING. If your 401 K dollar is worth ten cents in two years, how much do you stand to lose?
(rhetorical) If the dollar is replaced? If the management company goes under? If the bottom falls out of what they are invested in?
'Under someone else's control' is the last place I want my money today, so I would try to lessen that as much as possible. I don't think you can
eliminate it, but maybe take a couple steps to shield a little better.
It's a good thing we don't have to be experts to post.
I can't wait until someone with some REAL knowledge gives us some real insight.
