A 401(k) plan is a "savings" plan that allows an employee to put aside money from his paycheck before any taxes are calculated on it. In other words, there are no federal or s…tate taxes. They are however subject to social security and medicare taxes. The 401(k) plan is administered by the employer. Some employers match a portion of the amount the employee contributes to his own plan. Average match is about 3% of the employee earnings. There is a limit each year for the amount that the employee can contribute.
Per the FDIC website: http://www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/information/fdiciorn.html What Is Not Insured? Increasingly, institutions are also offering consumers… a broad array of investment products that are not deposits, such as mutual funds, annuities, life insurance policies, stocks and bonds. Unlike the traditional checking or savings account, however, these non-deposit investment products are not insured by the FDIC. Mutual Funds Investors sometimes favor mutual funds over other investments, perhaps because they hold promise of a higher rate of return than say, CDs. And with a mutual fund, such as a stock fund, your risk - the risk of a company going bankrupt, resulting in the loss of investors' funds - is more spread out because you own a piece of a lot of companies instead of a portion of a single enterprise. A mutual fund manager may invest the fund's money in either a variety of industries or several companies in the same industry. Or your funds may be invested in a money market mutual fund, which may invest in short-term CDs or securities such as Treasury bills and government or corporate bonds. Do not confuse a money market mutual fund with an FDIC-insured money market deposit account (described earlier), which earns interest in an amount determined by, and paid by, the financial institution where your funds are deposited. You can - and should - obtain definitive information about any mutual fund before investing in it by reading a prospectus, which is available at the bank or brokerage where you plan to do business. The key point to remember when you contemplate purchasing mutual funds, stocks, bonds or other investment products, whether at a bank or elsewhere, is: Funds so invested are NOT deposits, and therefore are NOT insured by the FDIC - or any other agency of the federal government.
The right answer is, It Depends. I like a ROTH IRA. Here we pay tax on our contributons. Qualified distributions from a ROTH IRA are tax free. The ROTH IRA also allows us to t…ake our Annual Contributions out of the IRA at any time without tax or without penalty for any reason, even to make a trip to Vegas and put it all on red. A Traditional IRA is OK too. Here we do not pay tax on our annual contributions giving us a tax advantage now. All distributions from a Traditional IRA are subject to income tax, and if taken before age 59.5 years, there is a 10% penalty. There are a few items that qualify for avoiding the 10% penalty. Everyone can contribute to a Traditional. Not everyone can take the tax deduction. This is called an after tax Traditional IRA. The earnings are tax deferred. When you take a distribution from this IRA part of the distribution is subject to income tax and part of the distribution is tax free. These amounts are based on the ratio of your after tax contributions to the total amount of the IRA. Both IRAs will provide you with more investment choices when you use a discount broker as the IRA custodian. IRAs typically are afforded $1,000,000 of bankruptcy protection. This may vary from state to state. The 401k contribution is taken from our pay each pay day. Some employer's offer a matching contribution. The Traditional 401k is not taxed when we contribute. It is taxed when we take a qualified distribution. Investment choices are usually limited to a set of mutual funds and savings accounts. Some 401k plans offer a loan feature. I do not recommend you ever take a loan from your 401k account. Some employers offer a ROTH 401k. Your contributions are taxed as you make the contribution. When you take the qualified distribution from the plan your money comes out tax free. When the employer makes a matching contribution to this IRA, it is a tax deferred contribution. You will pay ordinary income taxes on distributions of the employer's contribution. When you start contributing to a 401k plan, READ the Summary Plan Description. You will be given a copy, read it. The big advantage of a 401k plan is for 2008 you can contribute up to $15,500. And if you are over age 50, you can contribute an additional $5,000. This "Catch-up" contribution can be made even if your 401k limits you to an amount lower than the $15,500. Which is better? It Depends.
I was able to track down an old Fidelity Union Insurance policy by contacting Allianz North American Life and Casualty Company at 1(800) 950-5872. Allianz is now the parent Co…mpany of the old Fidelity Union Insurance Company. They did direct me to a subsidiary office in Dallas at 1(800) 743-5066 for additional information.
I work for Fidelity so can tell you that it depends. Your old employer may require paperwork. If so, it could take around 21 days before you get a check. If your old employer …does not require paperwork then it takes about 7 days.
