Does employer contribution count towards limit Roth 401k?

The short and simple answer is no. Matching contributions made by employers do not count toward your maximum contribution limit. But the IRS does place a limit on the total contribution to a 401(k) from both the employer and the employee.

Does Rolling over a 401k to an IRA count as a contribution?

While your rollover doesn't count as a contribution, a rollover from a 401(k) plan or traditional IRA, SEP IRA, or SIMPLE IRA into a Roth IRA may affect your ability to make a contribution to a retirement plan that year.

Can a traditional 401k be converted to a Roth 401k?

Not every company allows employees to convert an existing 401(k) balance to a Roth 401(k). If you can't convert, consider making your future 401(k) contributions to a Roth account rather than a traditional one. You are allowed to have both types. As mentioned, you'll owe income tax on the amount you convert.

Should I convert traditional 401k to Roth?

If you're planning to be financially independent before traditional retirement age, or if you want to reduce the taxes you'll owe later in life, converting a 401(k) into a Roth IRA might be a smart strategy.

Can I contribute to both Roth IRA and Roth 401k?

It is possible to have both a Roth IRA and a Roth 401(k) at the same time. However, keep in mind that a Roth 401(k) must be offered by your employer in order to participate. Meanwhile, anyone with earned income (or any spouse whose partner has earned income) can open an IRA, given the stated income limits.
