  • In addition to rolling over your 401k to an IRA, there are other options. Here is a brief look at all your options. For additional information and what is suitable for your situation, please consult us.

Leave money in your former employer's plan, if permitted. 

  • Pro:  May like the investments offered in the plan and may not have a fee for leaving it in the plan. Not a taxable event.
  • Cons:  Limited to the plan's investment options, may not be able to remain in the plan. You cannot take a loan against your old 401K plan.


Roll over the assets to your new employer's plan, if one is available and it is permitted.

  • Pro:  Keeping it all together and larger sum of money working for you, not a taxable event. May be able to borrow from the plan.
  • Cons:  Limited to the plan's investment options, may not be able to remain in the plan. You cannot take a loan against your old 401K plan.

Cash out the account

  • Cons:  A taxable event, loss of investing potential. Costly for young individuals under 59 ½; there is penalty of 10% in addition to income taxes.
  • Consider all available options, which include remaining with your current retirement plan, rolling over into a new employer's plan or IRA, or cashing out the account value. When deciding between an employer-sponsored plan and IRA, there may be important differences to consider - such as range of investment options, fees and expenses, availability of services, and distribution rules (including differences in applicable taxes and penalties). Depending on your plan's investment options, in some cases, the investment management fees associated with your plan's investment options may be lower than similar investment options offered outside the plan.
