I have a Roth 401(k) through this employer. Is that money at risk? My account shows that I am 100% vested and clearly lists my name on the account, but it also shows Overhead Door on there as the name of the plan. The plan is administered through our payroll (paychex).

I appreciate all the replies so far. I hope to keep coming back here as I have more questions or as things develop.


It depends what you mean by "at risk". In the absence of any clearly illegal actions by your employer, your Roth 401(k) is not at risk from your employer becoming insolvent. It is still at risk for losses due to the investment decisions made by you or the entities (such as mutual funds) you entrust your assets to. Your employer's name is on the fund because they are the sponsors of the plan. They decide who the administrators are (such as Fidelity) and what investment choices are available to plan participants.
