Hi

I'm 27 years old and have been taking advantage of both Roth 401ks and Roth IRAs for the past 5 years. Roth is good for young people, right? Well, I recently got a promotion and with it a raise that will put me into the 28% tax bracket. I fully intend to keep funding the Roth IRA as much as possible until income limits stop me. But my question is do I stop contributing to my Roth 401k and instead start putting my money into a traditional 401k? If not now, then at what point?

Thanks for weighing in!
