Helping you reach your personal & professional financial goals.

If you’re a 401(k) plan owner, be sure to…

…review your 401(k) plan(s), because some will allow distributions while you are still employed.

You can convert a distribution directly from a 401(k) into a Roth IRA, be sure not to overlook this option.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about Roth IRA’s, or think I can help you in any other ways, contact me, or give me a call at (239) 384-9688.
