tmeri,"1) I can leave my 401k with my current employer or roll it over when I separate. Suppose I quit today and leave it alone, then down the road (years from now) I want to choose an investment not available with my current plan. Can I still roll over to another company? Can I roll over only a part of the money?"Short answer...yes to all of above. However it is wise to check with your companys portfolio manager to see if the company has any restrictions."2) I want to open a Roth IRA. I am thinking of buying individual stock and making very few trades (LTBH). Ameritrade offers $0 setup and $0 annual fee for Roth IRAs and low trading costs. Are there any gotcha's with Ameritrade? What's in it for them?"Can't help ya with that one, I use a SEP-IRA (self directed) through CSFB Direct. $20 per trade. No other charges, even for funds that they handle (which is large, all the names)Am not familier with Ameritrade.."Does any company offer an arrangement where for a single account management fee, you can put part of your money in funds and use part to buy individual stocks?"As I said previously I use CSFB Direct and am able to mix and match anything I desire....within reason <g>.Check out their "propoganda".http://www.csfbdirect.com/Good luck.ray
