Howdy All!

Got a question. My wife is actively looking for new employment. She's been with her current employer for a little over 3 years and we have been maxing out her contributions to their 401(k) plan. We're both (barely) under 30, so our time horizons are quite far off.

My question is: once she leaves her current employer, what are our 401(k) rollover options?

I believe that I've read (somewhere) that we could
1) roll the money over into a traditional IRA, or
2) roll the money into her new employer's 401(k) plan (assuming they offer one).

I am missing anything?

Follow up question: What steps can we take now to minimize the hassle and amount of time it takes to roll the money over?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
