This Week: The Fed & the 401(k). President Obama nominated Janet Yellen to be the next Federal Reserve chair. We take a look at that news in the context of one area where the Federal Reserve matters: interest rates and housing. And, more than 70 million Americans have retirement accounts at work. In the last few years, there have been more lawsuits filed by workers against their companies and the plans they administer. What should you know about your 401(k)? A primer on the questions to ask your administrator about fees and performance. Plus, an update on the health care exchanges. Then, Marketplace’s Chris Farrell answers your personal finance questions, including when to buy life-insurance.
