First off I'm English with American wife and we're both working in the US. We've been here almost a year and I started my 401k the moment I heard about the $1,200 match. My wife's company has no 401K. We're also about to get two Roth IRA's before the April 15th deadline for 1998.

My question is, what if we decide at some future point to go live in England? Do we get to leave the 401K (rolled into a new Traditional IRA) and Roth IRA's over here in case we come back? What if we decided not to return? Is there a means/provision to get these things transfered abroad?

By the way, my company 401K is great, a handfull of T.Rowe Price funds (International Stock, Blue Chip Growth, Equity Income and others) and Janus World Wide to name but a few. Also the charges are low, $3.75 a quarter, and of course the match of $1,200 a year, which kinda makes up for the $3.75, but only just;)
