Rated 4 out of 5 by thebrentster I love the old web format and hate the new dashboard format. For example, the dashboard format tells me nothing. I need detail information like the old format. January 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by convenient & reliable Roth ira is an ideal vehicle to hold assets. Fidelity is a group of very trained advisors. My enhancement request would be to allow self-directed retirement vehicles January 24, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by easy and quick to establish " IRA to ROTH conversion " account This Roth is an " IRA to ROTH conversion " account at Fidelity.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Roth IRA Does what I expect it to do. What is there to review? January 24, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by My Roth IRA review All of the Fidelity Accounts are relatively easy to use. My only issue is that you do not provide the same level of information for Mutual Funds that are not Fidelity even though they are NTF funds. For example, fidelity funds have 10 years of Return Data while others have only 5. I have to assume the data is available to you but you choose not to include. Also, "Composition" page gives much more detail for Fidelity funds. Finally, no distribution history for non-fidelity funds. I understand that you would rather I purchase only Fidelity Funds but that is not real world January 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeanie's IRAs with Fidelity As the one who set up these accounts with Fidelity for my wife, I'll respond. Fidelity has always treated us well in its dealings with us. The local service center in West Hartford CT has always been staffed by comptetent, friendly, and clear speaking customer service reps with the ability to understand what we want and which products fit our needs best. Even before we moved to CT 22 years ago, this was the practice when he had to deal with reps by phone. BRAVO Fidelity January 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Convenient with good research tools I am happy with the Fidelity service and the ease of accessing and modifying the account.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Not sure what you want here. Not clear Overall, a good product with many investment choices. It would be better if I could indicate the exact federal and state taxes to withhold when I convert funds from my traditional IRA to my Roth IRA. I would also like checing account access to my Roth account now that I qualify to withdraw funds tax free. January 24, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by AO Web site user friendly. Calls answered promtly with no long holding. Movement of funds from my bank is painless. Questions are answered first time and I feel confident the information is correct. I work for a regional bank and am thankful that Fidelity does not have banks, they would be tough competition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Roth account review I've been advised that with auto-withdrawal from the bank to the roth account that fidelity will not insure that I go over the limit for the year and that it is my responsibility not to have more than the limit deposited; please address and fix this situation if this is still the case; thanks...

Rated 2 out of 5 by frustrated It was easy to transfer. My rep left and the new rep had somebody call me a few minutes before my appt and say she was sick and would contact me to reschedule. It has been a couple of months....maybe she died? I would like to invest smarter. January 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roth IRA good - no changes needed. I currently do not have any problems with my account. January 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Need better tools I would like to be able to see mutual fund risk and performance parameters, for a period and/or dates of my choice. That is, I would like to be able to specify two dates, let's say Jan 1,2000 to Jan 1,2009, and be able to see return after taxes, standard deviation, beta, etc. Especially 3-year risk parameters are totally insufficient to make a decision for IRA investments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by No complaints I have no complaints. The account is easy to use and I have never considered transferring it. January 24, 2013
