Hi Aquib,

Welcome to MortgageFit Forums.

It's really good to see that you are planning about your retirement.

It is best to invest in a 401(k) up to the employers match. But if your employer doesn't offer a matching contributions then it will be good to go for Roth IRA.

When you invest in Roth IRA you wont get tax deduction as you are getting for 401(k). But all the withdrawals will be tax free in retirement. And it is almost certain that you will be in a higher tax bracket when you retire then you are now.
