What is a PCRA account?
A self- directed option for investing your 401(k).
What's the difference between a standard 401(k) fund lineup and a Schwab PCRA account?
The main difference between the two is the level of investment choices available. A standard 401(k) plan typically offers a limited selection of mutual funds, while a PCRA gives you access to a much wider range of investments, including stocks, bonds, ETFs, and options.
This increased level of choice can be a major advantage for investors who want more control over their retirement savings. However, it's important to note that PCRAs also come with more risk. With a wider range of investments to choose from, there's a greater chance that you could make a bad investment decision.
How do I know if a PCRA account is right for me?
Ultimately, the best option for you will depend on your individual investment goals and risk tolerance. If you're looking for a simple and affordable way to save for retirement, a standard 401(k) fund lineup may be a good choice. However, if you want more control over your investments and are willing to take on more risk, a PCRA may be a better option.
Here are some additional things to consider when choosing between a standard 401(k) fund lineup and a Schwab PCRA:
If you're not sure which option is right for you, it's a good idea to talk to a financial advisor. They can help you assess your individual needs and goals and recommend the best investment option for you.
