Traditional vs. Roth

IRA Rollovers

Make Sure Your Hard Work Doesn't Go to Waste

If you are retiring or changing jobs and plan to withdraw money from your employer’s retirement plan, you can avoid withdrawal penalties by transferring your assets into an IRA or another qualified plan. You can ask your employer to arrange for a “direct rollover” of your money into a new IRA account with us, or you can do it yourself with an IRA-to-IRA rollover.

You must complete the rollover within 60 days from the date you receive the assets from your old IRA in order to qualify and not pay the mandatory 20% withholding and possibly other penalties as well. For more information about IRA rollovers or opening a new IRA, just give us a call at (620) 872-7224 ext. 413.
