Roll (or don't) that 401k
Fellow Fool TMFDataPrincess recently blogged "Hey Old Boss, I Want My Money Back" and I decided to turn my response into a Fool article.
TMF Foolishly (foolishly?) agreed that walking through a 401(k) rollover would be a good basis for an article.
In the article (and reply to TMFDataPrinecess' blog), I walk through how I approached a rollover a few years ago. It's certainly not the only way to go about it, but some up front planning can go a long way to insuring you end up with a retirement portfolio structured to suit your needs rather than a brokerage's.
Feel free to point out stuff I missed or share your own experience with a comment here or at the article or with your own blog entry.
