It’s time for another edition of Dollar and Cents. This is where I answer one of your questions.
This week question brings up something I’m semi-obsessed with – the Roth IRA!
If you rollover a 401k into an IRA is this amount subtracted from what you are able to contribute that year? So if I rollover my 401k next year if I leave my current employer, will I still be able to contribute to my IRA as usual up to the Roth IRA rules or will the rollover affect this?
