Cat -

If your roommate's employer has established a retirement plan he/she establishes the rules (within the law) & selects the vendor to manage the funds...

What? You'd forego employer contributions? That's "found money!" At least your roomie should contribute enough to the (401k) plan to capture the employer match! She can put the next $2000/year into a Roth IRA after that...

Good luck & Happy Holidays, PP
