Subject:  no matching 401k vs. Roth IRA Date:  8/13/2003  3:24 PM

Forgive me, I know a hundred people have probably asked this question!

My partner just starting working at a new company. They have a 401k plan but don't match in the first year of employment. Should she still start putting money in now or max out her Roth IRA this year instead?

She's 23 and making about $30,000

Thank you!
