If On A Work Visa, Should I Invest In 401k And Other Special Accounts?
One of the questions I get all the time is how to invest in the US stock market using special accounts like Roth IRAs, HSAs, 401ks, 529, etc. on an H-1B or other work visa (L-1, O-1, H1B1, TN, and E3)
This is keeping in mind that work visas are by nature temporary non-immigrant visas and technically the holder is expected to depart the US after the work assignment.
