    I am so happy I found this thread! This was really informative, DH and I were just talking about 401K accounts the other night and realized neither of us fully understood them.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    Thanks for posting, I've been drudging through our finance planning and its like information overload. This helps straighten out some areas.

    For someone your age, I would encourage a 401k, as more often than not, employers will match amounts that you put into your own 401k, and most 401ks are transferable between jobs.

    You can easily do a Roth IRA on the side as well.

    Thank you, everyone! It definitely helped clear up the differences. I got the general idea, but could NOT figure out which would be best for me. I think I'll read a little more about each, before I fill out the paperwork.

    Thank you again!

    You're welcome.
