I was thinking it would be a waste of time for the first yr so I was thinking about putting my money into a Roth IRA for the first yr or maybe up until 100% match and then start using my company 401k.
Is this a good strategy?
Heres the official thread for future reference Official Personal Finance Thread .
Like Yeah said, unless you plan to continue to use or Roll the Roth into your 401K I wouldn't open it.
I wouldn't do a CD either they aren't performing well, average 1 year CD rate is .38% .
You can open up an online savings account with Barclays and get 1.05% APY or 6.05% APY with a dream account (no withdrawals for 6 months and 1 deposit every month (max of 1K deposit per month) ). Seems like the dream account will be enough for you for 2 years, since this is very short term.
