I am new to having a retirement account besides being completely new to investing so I would really appreciate any advice you have on this...
I left my job in 2001 in order to attend college full time last fall. I have a 401k from the previous employer but I do not know what to do with it. I don't know if it matters but the end of year statement says I am 100% vested. I haven't touched the money but I am not contributing to a retirement plan right now either.
Should I just leave it alone in the account or should look for a Roth IRA plan to roll this into?
