Don’t get us wrong. In many cases, your 401(k) can be your best investment vehicle, offering numerous benefits and tax advantages and many times a 100% return on some of your contributions (also known as an employer match). However, it’s important to recognize that it might not always be the optimal choice for everyone. Join us in this thought-provoking episode as we dissect the reasons why someone should NOT invest in a 401(k).
By considering various scenarios, such as the absence of an employer match, the importance of having an emergency fund, potential tax rate changes, and the benefits of control and flexibility, Kyle will present alternative perspectives on retirement savings. Tune in for a conversation about assessing your individual situation and discover how adjusting your investment strategy and exploring other options could potentially benefit you!
