There is something important that I would like you to do if you changed jobs during your career. Please check if you “took” your 401 (k) with you or left it on purpose – or forgot it, leaving it lost, abandoned and maybe abandoned?
Bearing in mind that polls tell us that 401 (k) is one of the most valuable perks for people looking for a new job, how can you forget about a 401 (k)? According to a survey by Charles Schwab of 401 (k) plan members (tinyurl.com/4dfajk6p), a 401 (k) account ranks among health benefits as a “must have” option when looking for a new job. In fact, a 401 (k) plan (86%) and health insurance (84%) finished far ahead of life insurance, disability insurance and a health savings account in the survey.
