Should you use your 401(k) to pay down your mortgage?

July 13, 2019

On this week’s Allworth’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat discuss the pitfalls of putting a rental property in your IRA. In a podcast exclusive, they talk about what to do with a deceased spouse’s retirement accounts.

Scott and Pat advise a Colorado caller, with more than $1 million saved, if she should contribute to a Roth 401(k). A Sacramento caller asks if he should bolster his savings or pay down his debt after withdrawing his 401(k) savings to pay for his children’s education. A veteran asks Scott and Pat if he can refinance his wife’s mortgage.  Finally, Scott and Pat speak with a government employee who is considering rolling over his 457 account to an IRA.
