Key things to know

Tax benefits

You won't pay taxes on potential growth until you make withdrawals. You can move money from a former workplace plan to a rollover IRA without paying any taxes or penalties.2

Access to your money

You can take penalty-free withdrawals for certain expenses, such as a first home purchase, birth, adoption, or college expenses. However, a 10% early withdrawal penalty may apply for other withdrawals taken prior to age 59½.

Flexibility

With a rollover IRA, you can generally choose from a wider range of investments than you can in an employer's plan. However, when you reach age 72, you are required to take a certain amount of money out of your rollover IRA each year, called a required minimum distribution (RMD).3

Why you may want to consider other options

There are several choices for what to do with your old 401(k) when you retire or change jobs.
