The Advantages of Rolling Over a
Retirement Plan into an IRA
With a Wells Fargo Advisors IRA, you may be able to choose from a much-wider selection of investments than are available in typical employer-sponsored retirement plans. By rolling your assets directly to a Traditional IRA, instead of taking the money out of the plan or putting it in a non-retirement account, you keep all of your retirement plan assets working. There are no taxes or penalties due on retirement plan distributions that are directly rolled into a Traditional IRA until you begin taking distributions. That means you don't interrupt the tax-deferred growth potential of those assets and you can keep your retirement plan on track. Tax-deferred growth is an important advantage in creating a larger retirement fund. Working with you, we'll discuss where you are today, where you want to be, and the most suitable strategies for helping you pursue your goals.
