WHAT TO DO WITH THE OLD 401(k) Over the years in your old job, you have - one hopes - built up a tidy amount in your company retirement plan. What now? For most people, the best option is to roll the money into an IRA. First, that offers a wider choice of investment options. Second, and especially important, is a special estate-planning advantage: beneficiaries can take out the money over their lifetime and let the rest grow tax-deferred You can even divide your IRA among separate accounts with different investment strategies for each. For some, there may be advantages to leaving your money in the 401(k). If you're 55 but not yet 59 1/2 and think you might need it for living expenses, there are no early-withdrawal penalties. You can borrow from a 401(k) but not from an IRA. Idea: move some money into an IRA to invest; leave the rest in a company plan. But don't just take the money and run. That costs too much in taxes and penalties. Financial decision? Get the help you need from the know-how people at: I oliJ qs, to Jl] w. Main St., Quincy. 283-0680
