Listener Question of the Week:

Today’s listener question comes from Dusty Schuett:

“Have a question for you about 401ks for spouses not currently working. My wife has a 401k from a prior job. She’s currently doing the stay at home mom and homeschool teacher for a 2nd grader, preschooler and a 2 year old. Her 401k currently has fairly high expense ratio options. I’d love to get her out of that 401k into a more efficient fund. Can I roll that money into her IRA and do a back door conversion to Roth so that we can keep doing Backdoor Roth’s? Without any income, I’m assuming that I cannot start a solo 401k for her without any income correct? I’m starting to do some 1099 work and am considering hiring her to help with that which would allow me to create a 401k for her, she could then roll the prior 401k into the new 401k that I would manage, correct?”
