Your retirement savings – your way

A rollover IRA lets you move your money out of a previous employer’s
retirement plan or other IRA account and into an IRA that you control.

What is a rollover IRA?

A rollover IRA is an easy way to consolidate all of your retirement savings into one account.

The IRS allows for a tax-free, penalty-free rollover of your retirement savings from a previous employer’s qualified retirement plan to an IRA in your name.

Whether you are changing jobs, taking a break from work, or just looking for a new way to invest money you have in an old employer’s plan, a rollover IRA can be a great tool to stay on track for retirement success.
