Have you recently changed jobs or retired? A Rollover IRA is often used to move funds that you've accumulated from your previous employer-sponsored retirement plan into a new IRA.
Top Four Reasons to Consider a Rollover IRA
1. Rolling your assets into one IRA may reduce the costs associated with multiple accounts and keep better track of your overall retirement portfolio.
2. Reduce portfolio overlap. Having several accounts can have you holding many of the same securities in each account, and leave your portfolio vastly under or overweight in one or more asset types.
3. May give you more estate planning flexibility. With an IRA, you can choose any beneficiary. In contrast, 401(k)s require spousal consent to name a non-spouse beneficiary.
4. Leaving retirement assets in your former employer's plan limits your investment options to whatever that plan offers. Rollover IRAs may offer a broader choice of investment options.
