Rated 5 out of 5 by Rollover IRA from Profit Sharing Process was pretty straightforward and simple once we had contacted Vito our Fidelity representative. He set up the Rollover IRA account and outlined the process and defined the address and who the check was to be made out to. The rollover went off without a hitch without me ever taking physical possession of the check which could potentially have resulted in a withholding and even triggerred a taxable event.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nothing Works I tried setting up EFT using your webpage. It did not work. I have spent 3 hours on the phone last week and 1 hour on the phone this week, and no one was able to help me out. I was told to using the secure message system to upload my EFT form. However, I am unable to upload files. The file I am uploading is only 700kb and should not be a size issue. I cannot use the account if I can not transfer funds into and out of it. I cannot get it working via the web page, and I can not get anyone on the phone to help me out, and the messaging system is not working. There are no offices around my area. What am I suppose to do?
