Returning to India by mid-end of 2019, need 401k advice
I maxed out 401k as long as I was with Microsoft (they pay 9k to 401k). I recently joined a bay area company. Job's great, they don't contribute to 401k tho, they provide some 401k account with a small financial institution, benefits seem to be none - just hold money pre tax.
I will sell real estate assets and investments in the US when I leave to India. Regarding 401k, I am uncomfortable leaving my money until I'm 60 (under 30 now) in a foreign country that could prevent anyone from entering at any point, but I am open to withdrawing over 1-2 years if there are huge tax benefits of doing so. Considering that I'm moving to India by mid-end 2019:
1. Should I continue to contribute to 401k like I did earlier? (Or just invest post tax money in US equities instead? Done decently okay - indexes seem to be doing great, trading account made 9.8% last 3 months)
2. If yes, do I continue to contribute into the Fidelity 401k account that Microsoft provided? Is that even possible from a different employer? Or do I start a new one with this small institution?
