investment-9-Landing-Page-Image.jpgIf you’ve recently changed jobs, you’re likely facing some decisions regarding the money you’ve saved in your former employer’s retirement plan. While you have several choices available when it comes to those assets, choosing a Rollover IRA may be your best option.

The Benefits of the Rollover IRA

A Rollover IRA is a type of individual retirement account (IRA) designed specifically for people who have savings in a former employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as a 401(k) or 403(b). There are a number of advantages that come with moving—or rolling over—your retirement assets directly into an IRA:

  • You pay no taxes or penalties when you roll over
  • You often have a wider range of investment options & greater control over your savings
  • Your investment remains tax-deferred
  • A Rollover IRA generally offers increased flexibility of your assets including penalty-free withdrawals for qualified higher education costs & qualified first-time home purchases
  • You gain the opportunity to consolidate your retirement assets into one place, simplifying your investment management & reducing paperwork

Before you decide how to invest your savings, consider when you’re going to need the money. This is also known as your time horizon. Once you’ve determined the number of years you will be investing and how much fluctuation you can tolerate in the value of your savings, you can begin to choose an asset allocation strategy. This strategy will serve as a blueprint for the way you invest, guiding your decisions about how much of your savings to invest in stocks, bonds, and short-term investments.

Choosing a Beneficiary

Selecting beneficiaries for retirement benefits is different from choosing beneficiaries for other assets such as life insurance. With retirement benefits, you need to know the impact of income tax and estate tax laws in order to select the right beneficiaries. Although taxes shouldn't be the sole determining factor in naming your beneficiaries, ignoring the impact of taxes could lead you to make an incorrect choice.
