Decisions…decisions. It’s really important to get the process of rolling over your 401(k) right. When you leave your job one of your most important decisions will be what to do with the retirement savings you’ve built up through the years in your 401(k) or 403(b) plan.

Money is an interesting concept – we work our whole life for it, spend it when the time is right (or wrong), and give it away carefully or carelessly. Money essentially drives everything we do, whether we like it or not. This gives us all the reason more to give special attention to how we manage what we earn, and thus the importance of saving.
Saving money is something that comes naturally to some and is easier said than done for others. If you have money, why not spend it? Well… you are more likely to spend it all and have nothing left.
