I just got a new job, and the company does not match 401k. Should I still put money into the 401k, or just put my money straight into a Roth IRA?


depends.
some don't like 401k w/o match because they tend to
offer crappy investments

I LIKED 401k because it forced me to save




Also, what do I do with the 401k from my previous employer?


roll it DIRECTLY to individual IRA

good luck
