Is this for real? There are 401K plans that match what you roll into them?!

dswartz,
My previous post was not that 401K plans will match what you roll into them.

I said most plans only match new contributions, not existing balances. That is, new 401k deductions from your paycheck are matched, and existing balances that you rollover are generally not matched.
