How To Roll Over Your 401k

401(k) Rollover to IRA

We want your switch to be easy, so we simplified the rollover process.






If you do not have an existing account, you will have to create a new account. Select Individual Retirement Account (IRA) as the type of account, and then highlight the type of IRA (Roth or Traditional, for example) on the new account form.








Fill out the Account Transfer Form. If you are rolling over a 401(k) or other qualified plan, the plan administrator may require you to complete additional paperwork.







Submit the completed Account Transfer Form, along with the most recent account statement for your 401(k) or IRA, to us. You can mail, fax or drop off your documents at your local branch.


Sit back and relax. We’ll finish the paperwork—and we’ll even refund you up to $100 in transfer-out fees*.

How You’ll Know Your Account Has Been Opened:

We’ll send you an email once the account opening process has been completed. In the meantime, feel free to call your local Scottrade team with any questions or to check in.
