Rated 5 out of 5 by My IRA rollover Fidelity staff members are courteous and make me feel very comfortable the way they have been helping me with my accounts, whenever I ask a question they are right there with the answers or options I have with the choices I have made since my retirement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I am happy with my decisions When my company got acquired and I was faced with rolling my money over to another institution, I was unsure of what to do. I liked the service at Fidelity and after talking with the other institution about rolling my money into their 401K, I was not impressed. They were very basic and uncaring. I chose instead to roll my money into a Fidelity IRA. Not knowing what to do with it, I let it sit a while, then called Fidelity for advice. I was given options by some of the most patient and mild mannered people. I really appreciated their concern. I got the education I needed to make an informed decision about my money and feel good about it. Kudos!! July 19, 2016

Rated 3 out of 5 by Unclear on this survey Not sure why this showed up for answering. All I know is what Fidelity tells/shows me per portfolio reports. Looks good but still just "pie in the sky" at this juncture of my life. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Manage, Lots of Features I was contacted by Fidelity when I left my previous employer. They suggested that I roll over my Fidelity 401k to a Fidelity IRA. I can't say for sure that it was the right or wrong thing to do however I can say that there are a lot of available choices and my IRA survived Brexit pretty well. The adviser assigned to me was very helpful although I haven't heard from them for a while. July 11, 2016
