Exception to rule:
I moved from a Utility company to Investment Banking firm where i had choices in my 401k to invest in closed funds also.
So always check all the options available but i agree with the post. Thanks

Or how much faith you have in the fiducial duties and oversight of your former employers.

I was a federal employee for 7 years and I have over $130,000 in the Thrift Savings Plan, the Federal 401(k). They have an SP500 index, a Wilshire 4500-like index and an EAF-like index. The fees are from .03-.05% (Vanguard's vaunted SP500 index has low fees of .18% -- about 6x the current level of the TSP).

I can balance my investments by using other vehicles (Roth, etc) to invest in other indexes or stocks.

However, I am currently considering convering some to a Roth IRA -- it is such a powerful tool. But the first few don't really seem to apply.
