5 Questions to Ask Your 401K Advisor Today
The simple answer is no. The only impact on time held has to do with the taxes paid. If you have a gain and the stock is sold within 1 year of purchase you will pay short-term gains which are taxed at current income rate. If that same stock is held over 1 year that tax rate will be reduced to your long-term tax rate.
Congratulations on retirement first of all. When looking at your 401(k) there is no set time frame that you have in order to rollover your assets into an IRA as long as the balance exceeds $5000. One thing that you do need to pay attention to, however, is the required distributions. Not that you have retired and you have aged beyond 70 1/2 you will need to ensure that each year you are removing at least a minimum of your plan based on your age and the balance in the account the end of the previous year. Unless you were an owner or a key person you may have been able to get around this for the last several years but the IRS will be looking for those distributions now.
Your question appears that you are trying to keep the payments down in order to pay extra and pay the house off in 10 years. A HELOC (home equity line of credit) is still a version of debt against the house. The typical HELOC allows for 10 years worth of access to the line that can be used, paid off, then reused again. In this first ten years, you are generally only needing to make interest payments which will not reduce the principle amount owed. At the end of the 10 year, it then turns into a term loan requiring payments of both principle and interest. The interest that you pay on a HELOC is variable in large part because of the usability over the ten-year time frame. Based on the current interest rate trend it will increase over the next several years which will also directly impact your payment.
Even though these can be useful instruments for people to use in their financial lives, I am not sure it makes sense towards your objective of paying it off in 10 years. If you have a preset budget that you are comfortable paying on a monthly basis, I would recommend you possibly lengthen the time you pay by a short time or by reducing the costs that go into the building the home. Good luck in your decisions and enjoy your new home.
based on the time frame you have listed you will not yet qualify to set aside the gains on your primary residence because you have not owned it and used it for the last two years. However, because the ownership has been longer than one year you should be looking at long-term gains. In figuring out what the amount is you need to look at differences between the selling amount, $350,000 and purchase amount, $315,000, plus all expenses. Expenses can include commissions and upgrades to the house.
The principal guaranteed fund is unique in retirement plans to the TSP but not in the IRA world. The G fund is made up of "special nonmarketable treasury security issued specifically for the TSP by the U.S. government". These instruments are backed by the full faith and credit of the US Government and therefore when the mature offer that principal protection. That being said you can also purchase these type of securities in the outside market. Interest rates of government securities are generally lower than most other debt instruments in part because of the security and in part because of potential tax advantages in accounts that fall outside the 401(k), TSP realm. There are other instruments that can offer you low risk that may yield you a higher return.
Now addressing should you withdraw the funds and place the money into a bank. No. Generally withdrawing the funds refers to removing them from tax-deferred status and paying taxes on the balance. This would immediately place you in the highest potential tax bracket for both state and federal. The tax loss would be very difficult to recover it would significantly reduce the income that would be produced. Now assuming you rolled it over into an IRA and approached the same investment strategy, this might work but truly depends more on your income and emergency needs. You need to sit down with someone to help determine how you intend to spend these funds in retirement and reverse engineer your plan. Once you figure out what YOU need from the funds over your life can you determine the best investment approach. If the rate of return you receive is too low you will find yourself invading the principle and potentially running out of funds too early. Therefore, accepting a "safe" low rate of return can be as much if not more risk to your financial longevity as taking on too much risk.
