Thanks for the replies. I figured I'd have to get a crystal ball, but wanted to be sure I'm not overlooking something obvious.

I currently contribute 16% to my 401k and 1.5% to a pension plan which is matched 100%, but I'm not sure that I'm enthralled with the choices of funds we get from Fidelity. I would probably reduce the 401k to the point of being able to max out a ROTH with the additional after tax income (which I would be able to choose any investments in).

This seems like a good course of action but I guess I'll check with my tax preparer to see if this would bump us up a bracket.


I have another old 401k that I never rolled over, I have contemplated conversion to a ROTH but was leary of the potential tax bill.
