Investing Sense celebrated our 300th show a few weeks ago, and over the years, so many listeners and callers asked: ”How can I get started saving for retirement?” Andy’s most common answer: “Max out your 401(k)!” But there are some common, costly mistakes that many Americans are making and could result in leaving $10,000’s on the table! The guys reveal an easy step to take in making sure YOU aren’t making these same mistakes.

Money on the table – Could you be leaving $10,000’s in 401(k) dollars on the table? With the help of Pat who emailed the show, the guys take a closer look at the costly mistakes many people make with their 401(k)s, 403(b)s, IRAs, and other retirement plans, along with an easy way for you to get this same type of analysis today!

Ask Andy: Company stock in 401(k) - Scott holds a large amount of company stock in his 401(k), which he wants to move, but is worried about a penalty. Andy gives him some practical advice, but also warns against the dangers of holding too much company stock, using General Electric (GE) as an example.
