Should I take my retirement out when I retire and invest it, and what should I invest it in?

I am required to contribute 9% of my income. My work contributes 13%. I have worked there 8 years with approximate income of $27,000 per year Until this year starting 01/01/15 it increased to $30,000. I plan to work at least 3 more years.

Candi,
How old are you and how much money do you have in your 401k plan? I would need to know some more detail before I would advise you.

So, we're talking about less than $100,000.00 here, right? I don't know your age, but the only way to safely invest that money so that it never runs out is a Fixed Income Annuity. Good Luck! | 06.23.15 @ 15:53

Hi Candi, be careful with any sort of annuity as these usually carry a lot of high fees. I would suggest looking for a fee-only financial advisor who can advise you on what to do in regards to both your retirement and investments. $100k is not a lot of money so depending on the lifestyle you want to live during retirement you may need to work longer. The timing on when to take social security would be very important for you as well. | 07.28.15 @ 19:26
