Hi! Looking for some input as I am semi-new to this FIRE lifestyle and never been in this particular position.
My company offers a pension, but we are being sold and the new company does not. We will be vested in what we have in our account and will be given the option for an immediate distribution, or postpone to a later date. The pension benefit will continue to receive interest credits at a rate of 4% per year.
I have been with the company for 3 years, so there is only about $8k in my account. Should I take the money and put it into something I will track more often or leave it to grow for many more years? I am 30 years old.
It seems like leaving it to grow could be great, but my concern is if I change jobs several times before I get to the retirement age, will I lose track of this money? Any suggestions out there?
