I spent the last two years of my life digging into every 401k situation out there, ive also talked to many different plan sponsors about 401ks. Your right if your 401k is that bad your better off staying away. Laws are changing everyday because the government knows how bad this problem really is. $40 million americans down the road will be short of retireing. everyone is telling you it a no-brainer to invest in a 401k plan because the employer match. What if there wrong? Actully i know there wrong if there matching 3% id say more than half of the employers plans fees are higher than that in America. And employees dont need to put up with this theres a 1800 number at the dol to call department of labor. Also if you write your employer to give you full disclousre and list all the conflicts of interest so you know where your money is going. they have to provide you this. Also on the dol website theres a form they have you send it to your provider they have to fill it out were all your kickbacks are going the average employee is paying 5-6people in the nest egg. The reason why is huge conflict of interest and unneccassary commissions. Guys 1% extra can eat up 40% of your money down the road its to important. My plan that i set up cost .60 for total cost average is 2.5% huge difference my plan accepts fiduciary resposbility and average fund cost is .020 useing alot of vanguard and low costing no commission funds. No kickbacks no revune sharing, theres a book out there called rip off 401k and fixing the 401k i would get them. also bloomberg news did a video called hidden fees , you can pull it up online. No plan should cost over 1.3% hi guys,

One idea to minimize the impact of these expenses is to use the group annuity plan for the fixed income or bond portion of your portfolio. Maintaining your equity positions in the more efficient plan (IRA or whatever) with mutual funds. You mentioned Vanguard and of course their equity products are cheap, the main reason they perform well of course. It is after all one pool of retirement money so look at it in aggregate. I hope that makes sense and helps. A practical way to capture the tax-deferral available as well as any match money your ER might throw in. Best of luck!

It seems like that is definitely the case. Transamerica is mostly an insurance company and I found some pages with investment information in my account. It says the funds are really TLIC Separate Accounts, which are annuity contracts with Transamerica Life Insurance Company. It also says that the "separate account investment choices offered are exempt from registration with the SEC, therefore, no prospectuses are filed for them". So, that's pretty lame.
