My work just started offering a Roth 410k. I would like to solicit the group's thought on which might be better.BackgroundAge: 31Wife(SAHM) & 2 kids (ages 1 & 3)Debt: Mortgage onlyPlan: Max out 401k contributions regardless which method. Employer will match the same regardless. I am not eligible for a Roth IRA.We LBYM so the difference in take home pay will not affect our standard of living. I am not sure what my tax rate will be when I retire, but I believe I will be able to retire by 50 w/ $3 mill and live off the interest/dividends. Based on 4% return, I would expect to still be in high tax bracket (again a guestimate).I am leaning towards the Roth 401k as I like the long-term ability to grow my investments tax free. However, the pre-tax option saves me about $5k in taxes a year (15k x 33%, simple estimated math-don't flame me for the lack of accuracy). That 5k if reinvested in after-tax account would also grow. novicetraining
