Rated 5 out of 5 by Confidence in Fidelity My wife and I have our retirement savings (taxable and non-taxable 401K,403B, etc.) invested with Fidelity. My wife inherited an IRA from her father which was invested with another organization. We rolled it over to Fidelity for simplicity of management and investment choices. Fidelity was immensely helpful by detailing the steps we needed to follow to avoid a taxable situation. The organization where the funds were invested originally had very inexperienced representatives assigned. They did not ask the appropriate questions and were unfamiliar with Inherited IRA rules. Thank goodness Fidelity advocated for its customer (me), and was politely insistent with the competitor that a different process (from what the competitor suggested) would be much wiser. We avoided significant tax and made the tax reporting straightforward. Another reason to invest with Fidelity. June 13, 2016
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 5 out of 5 by Anyone can do it The wife and I had 403b accounts with Fidelity for 35 years. At retirement, we rolled to the Fidelity Rollover IRA. We're very happy that we did. We can manage our investments with ease. We've configured automatic deposits of dividends to our checking account. We can fund retirement without making a career of it. Love it! September 13, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Resources Have no issues with online capabilities and reference resources; however, I had attended a bonds seminar in the Shrewsbury, NJ office over a month ago and thought I would have heard back about my wanting a meeting to discuss the bonds in my portfolio.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Rollover (after) Even though my old 401K was with Fidelity I still found the rollover very easy to accomplish. Everything went very smoothly and in the time frame indicated. It is after the rollover I am having some difficulty. The resources available are not as easy to navigate. There are plenty of options but they don't flow well and I feel I have to dig deep to find what I want. I also have part of the rollover that didn't match any of the IRA funds just sitting in cash. I will have to call to figure out what assistance I can get to invest that portion. September 6, 2016
