At work, we sit in cubicals, so it's really easy to overhear your neighbor's conversations. That can be both a good thing and a bad thing, and usually we try to ignore what we hear, obviously. Well, today, I heard my supervisor speaking with the company who handles our 401k, asking what the procedure and penalty is for withdrawing funds from her 401k. I wanted to jump up and shake her for even thinking about doing that. She's two years younger than me, and not in as settled a life-mode. She was talking to someone later about how she wants to pay off some credit cards and wants to buy a home next year so she can stop throwing money away on rent. I'm sure she does not realize how bad of a decision it is to use her retirement money to do these things. I just want to shake her until she comes to her senses!

    Don't do it. Once you start shaking people who really, really need it, where do you stop? There is no end to human perversity.

    Maybe the benefits people will be able to talk some sense into her. Maybe she will find other resources. Maybe she will learn a lesson without getting hurt too badly.

    Hope so.

    Never profer advice unless it is solicited! Thus you don't offend. If a person asks your advice then give it if you wish! Just my thoughts!Smile
