Info About Getting a Roth IRA

I left my last job not that long ago and I had a 401k there for a long time. I want to figure out what to do with that investment fund going forward and so I have been looking at http://roth-ira.net to try to see what some of my options are. I think that getting a Roth IRA would be a good idea, on the surface, but at the same time I must admit that I do not actually know that much about them or how they work. I assume it will be kind of similar to a 401k but I need to learn more of the details before I make any sort of decision.

It is important to me that I am very careful with my money, because I would like to make sure that I have enough money to retire on, whenever I actually retire. I do not see that happening for a number of years though, and so maybe I shouldn’t worry about it. But that would be foolish, and I want to be as prepared as possible. I just get upset sometimes because of the rising costs of retirement and the rising costs of living in general. I think that life would have been a lot simpler if things stayed the way they used to be. But of course, change is inevitable and so I should not expect anything different.

I am going to browse this website and see what I can figure out, and then I am going to try to weigh all of my options and then make a decision on what I should do. I guess I will try to figure it all out tonight, if I can, because I do want to take some sort of action before too long and I do not want to put this off.
