let's go over five key points. number one, be weary of administrative fees. they can add up. these fees can total 1% or more. and could add up to as much as $140,000 over your lifetime. number 2, your investment solution may be sub par. on average today's plans offer a total of 19 fund choices. there are over 7,000 plus funds out there in existence today. number 3, be careful with target date funds. these areed rage today. they sometimes will automatically enroll you in these fund choices while the target date funds may help you manage your risk a bit better, check the expenses and how they are truly allocated. number 4 employer contributions vanish when you leave your job. the employer match is one of the biggest reasons to truth. if you leave your job, there is less incentive for you to leave
the auto enrollment is not always the best option because you may not have as much control to be able to save what you need to save for retirement. for more information or anything about your 401(k), get a second opinion and that's this week's money tip. >> thanks so much. if you would like more information, tune in to retirement solutions with bill smith sundays at noon. you can call the office at 866- 417-4156 or log on to wa smith
