17-Dec-2017 22:41

When you’ve switched jobs multiple times in your career, you may have participated in several employer-sponsored retirement plans, such as 401(k) and 403(b) plans.

401(k)s are generally provided by many for-profit employers, while 403(b) plans are most often used by the nonprofit sector.

So, before deciding to roll over an employer-sponsored plan, you should research the details of your current account and consult tax professionals and other advisors with any questions about your specific personal situation.

If you’re a Betterment customer, you can ask questions of our licensed financial experts using the Betterment mobile app.

In this article, we’ve provided three general reasons to consider rolling over to an IRA, but as an individual investor, your situation is unique.

The key is that when deciding whether to rollover a retirement account, you should carefully consider your personal situation and preferences.

Furthermore, depending on your situation, if you move your retirement assets to one provider, you can also improve the tax-efficiency of your taxable investments using asset location.

One of the main benefits of an IRA is that there are often more investing options than a 401(k) or 403(b) plan.
