Rated 5 out of 5 by IRA Rollover The process was made easy with Fidelity's help. They were the managers of the 401K also. There was one phone call involved and a little data input. It was done in an expeditious manner and the funds were explained to me. I was able to get the login requirements completed and confirmed before I left the local office. May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Friendly, with reliable investments I have utalized several investment firms for my IRAs in the past, but have begun moving all of my accounts over to Fidelity because I find that Fidelity is the most comprehensive, informative, and trustworthy firm that I have delt with. The Fidelity website is heads above any of the other firms in terms of accessible information, retirement planning calculators, and other features. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to view, change, and lookup Not being a super savvy to financial trends I like the ease of talking to customer service, having changes made and the ease of the whole process. I can log into account and check all transactions - again easy to use. January 18, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Never Too Early What a great catch phrase to motivate this Mom to jump back in the game after letting my $ sit for way too long while I raised my children. From the moment I saw the words "Never Too Early" it completely changed my thinking from "It's too late now" to "Why not start right now!". I called and spoke to a Fidelity representative who was literally happy to hear from me. It was like speaking with a long lost friend who was happy I was back in town. He helped me get a fresh new start on my investments & encouraged me to stay in the game while assuring that Fidelity's assisance is just a phone call away! December 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good rollover choice I started doing some investing with Fidelity because my company had my 401k with them and they seemed like a good choice. The investment side works so well and easily that when I retired, I rolled my 401k over into a Fidelity IRA. That was a quick, easy and seamless process. The breadth of investment choices with Fidelity is excellent, and the online tools to view, report, analyze or change my investments work well. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by confidence in Fidelity confirmed The transition for my retirement accounts from my employer to my rollover IRA couldn't have been easier. The assistance and advice for consolidating my accounts was excellent and the brokerage website and options for investing couldn't be better. I am 100% pleased with the services Fidelity offers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by New rollover account Establishing a new rollover account was simple and convenient online. Then the transfer from another management company to Fidelity was flawless. Special instructions were given when some funds were not able to be transferred in kind. I spoke with an agent when I had questions and was very please with the help.The Old Guy February 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Process was streamlined and fast Fidelity did a great job with my rollover. The process was fast and I didn't have to do much on my end. I have worked for some of Fidelity's biggest competitors and I can confidently say that Fidelity is light years ahead of them in service, technology, and overall customer satisfaction. I have been suggesting Fidelity to all my friends and family as the place to roll over their old assets because of the fast and clean platform to manage their money. Fidelity's reps are always friendly and helpful and do not go overboard in suggesting other products. I vouch for Fidelity. I hope to achiece all my financial goals with them. November 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good service - well pleased. The Fidelity characteristic I like best is the consistency of good customer service. I have had a Fidelity account for many years and have never been disappointed. Also the handling of paperwork and follow up by Fidelity representatives is very good. I have gradually consolidated my accounts with Fidelity and look forward to continued good service in my retirement. June 27, 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Timing glitch in hindsight My Fidelity representative did a good job by pointing out that the limited options in my former employer's 401(k) plan, though managed through Fidelity, were OK but not particularly great options. The one thing I wrestled with at that time over rolling into a Traditional IRA was the extra protection against creditors 401(k) offers. My representative pointed out that our family umbrella policy provided more that adequate protection, so I initiated the rollover which went smoothly. A couple of months later, I opted to take a normal distribution from my IRAs. At that point I realized that the rollover had significantly reduced the percentage of my IRAs in which I had a basis. This resulted in a larger tax bill than if I had delayed the rollover to a later year. October 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Secure and reliable Well satisfied with your company. Your staff is very efficient. October 11, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by My rollover experience Doing a rollover is a very complicated experience. I was assisted quite well with the whole process except where I was supposed to get the rebate for doing this rollover. Someone dropped the ball in making sure I got that. So I had to track it myself and backtrack to get this taken care of. October 10, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Friendly and easy. When inquiring about my GM 401(k) account, I was advised that I had substantial after-tax contributions in my account. I was advised that I could roll them over to a Roth IRA if I also rolled-over the untaxed related earnings on all after-tax contributions. Therefore, I established a roll-over Roth IRA and a roll-over (tax-deferred) roll-over IRA. It was easy and quick with Fidelity. October 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to work with I rolled $ from my work 401K, which had limited choices for investment, into a rollover, where I direct the investments. This is a meaningful capability for me. October 2, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Secure and reliable but frustrating too. I am investment illiterate and while I understand no customer service agent can recommend a particular action but I need all the guidance I can get. I am not at all happy with the result so far. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to understand and manage My Fidelity IRA has been easy to understand and manage since the rollover. The features at the Fidelity site, the reporting, and the tools all contribute to a clear view and understanding of the account. The webinars help illuminate the features and options available to the investor. September 27, 2016
