When you leave an employer for a new job or to retire, you have choices to make regarding your retirement account. You may choose to roll over the funds you have accumulated into a rollover IRA. A rollover IRA is used to hold assets that have been distributed from an employer’s retirement plan such as a 401(k) or Profit Sharing Plan. Before rolling over your retirement account from your employer, you should consider all your options to determine what is best for you. Consider the items addressed in The IRA Rollover: 10 Tips to Making a Sound Decision provided by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
There is no limit on the amount of money you can roll over. This type of an IRA can be kept separate from your Traditional IRA contributions to allow you to possibly roll it back into a new employer's plan.1
No taxes are due at rollover if completed within 60 days of receiving withdrawal from employer-sponsored plan; however, withholding may apply unless a direct rollover to your Rollover IRA is requested with your employer.
