My last job I had a 401k, but if I get the job I'm interviewing Tuesday for, they have some 457 Deferred Compensation plan. What the heck is the difference?

This is the best I could find comparing the two, link.


Which is better?

Appears to be a 401(k) equivalent for government employees. I work for a non-profit and it's a 403(b) plan instead of a 401(k), but it's basically the same thing.

I am being told the best thing is the roth's so instead of rolling over your 401 put it in an IRA Roth

Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be :)

Yes. Depends on one's age, but since Zero is quite young, Roth IRA is the way to go. Gives you WAY more freedom than a 401k.
