Once I see the info that DD brings home, I'll let you know if there are any more questions, but the Roth 401k certainly sounds like the way to go for her.

One thing she may want to check is whether she can invest differently for the Roth portion of the 401k. The plan I have does not allow for that. They just have all the money in one pot and apply the instructions by percentages. However the administrator keeps track of what is part of the Roth and what isn't and further tracks what is contributions vs earnings. If I remember correctly I used to manage another 401k account (same administrator but different employer) where it was possible to make different investments based on the source of the money.
