different story. Often, you can do better in a nondeductible IRA and/or taxable account. You have to analyze the alternatives against the 401k on a tax-equivalent basis to be sure.<I/>
I almost responded to the original post and I am in no way taking exception to what pixy wrote, but this keeps seeming like it is being thought of as an either/or thing.
But I would think the best of all worlds would be to do both (and yes I know that cash is hard to come by).
But from what I have read even a very modest investment outside of the 401k fund will over enough time grow to a very nice additional nest egg.
Just a thought
