Portfolio Recharacterization

No one wants to get laid off, at least not until you have FU Money.  However, one of the benefits of a layoff is being able to roll over your employer sponsored retirement plan, most likely a 401k, into cheaper options or into a more personalized investment plan.

That's exactly what I did with my 401k when I was laid off in April 2016.  My original plan was to primarily trade options with that capital and while I was fairly successful with it I've decided to change directions and go to a more passively invested portfolio.
