Should I Rollover My Old 401(K)?

<br data-mce-bogus="1">

As a participant in a 401(k) at your workplace, when you leave your current employment for reasons other than retirement, you’ll have decisions to make about what to do with these funds.

A rollover essentially means transferring funds from an existing 401(k) into an IRA or another 401(k) plan. The four basic options to consider are these:

  • Consolidate your retirement accounts and roll the 401(k) funds into a single account.
  • Roll the 401(k) into a new plan at your new employer
  • Keep the old account, if permitted, and monitor it as part of your overall portfolio
  • Cash out the old account

Before you act, be certain that you understand the ramifications of the action you take. As an independent advisory firm, Independence Financial Partners can help you navigate this  transition smoothly, and make sure that the investments in your account are customized to your needs and goals. We will walk you through all the choices that factor into your decision.

When your retirement funds are rolled into an IRA, you typically gain greater control over your investment choices and may have potentially lower fees.
