eeh007: I believe that Snootfool's comment was correct but did not focus on a part of your statement. You said "I currently have about 2,000 dollars in my 401k account through my employer." I am not sure that you will have the choice to let your moeny in your soon to be former employer's 401-k plan, because it is less than $3500 (former amount, I have heard, but not checked the rules that the threshhold amount has been increased to $5000). Below the threshhold amount, employers are not obligated to maintain the account after you leave - either do a trustee-to-trustee transfer (my preference) or take a distribution (80% of the amount because the employer will withhold 20% for taxes) and then reinvest the total amount of the account (100%) within sixty days or pay the taxman for the distribution - regular income tax plus 10% penalty if you are less than 59 1/2. Regards, JAFO
