I don't think I have good investment choices in my 401K plan, but I've always saved the max. Does it make sense to save to an IRA instead and put the rest in some other kind of account where I can choose the investments? -- Analyzing If your employer offers a 401K and will match a percentage of your contributions, you should definitely take advantage of it, said Lisa McKnight, a certified financial planner with Lassus Wherley in New Providence.
