Greetings, MoFoGeorge, and welcome.

<< I have an idea that involves my employer's Wise 401K plan (read sub-par returns and no matching contributions) but I'm not sure it's possible. If I contribute a portion of my salary into this 401K, can I then periodically (monthly, quarterly, or annually) transfer the balance into a conduit IRA, or is the option to transfer the balance into an IRA available only upon termination of employment?>>

Your benefits administrator can tell you what in-service distributions man be made from your 401k plan. In general, though, you can't get at that money again until you leave your job by quitting, getting fired, retiring, or expiring. I don't recommend the latter.

Regards....Pixy
