Stay in Your old 401(k) Plan
If allowed by the plan, you may be able to stay in your previous employer’s 401(k). The concern is, investors tend to forget about and not properly manage their old 401(k).
Rollover to Your new Employer's Plan
If allowed by your new employer’s plan, rolling over your 401(k) will help ensure you pay more attention to it; in addition, this option will help you avoid taxes and penalties. It is crucial to maintain all of your retirement investment assets.
