Before making any rollover decisions, investors should research and consider all available retirement options carefully. Your decision should reflect consideration of various factors, including the benefits and penalties involved. Some of these factors include, but are not limited to, investment or account related fees and expenses, differing levels of service available, withdrawal penalties, creditors and legal protections, required minimum distributions, and factors related to owning employer stock. The importance of these factors will vary depending on your individual needs and circumstances. Tax consequences may vary depending on state law and your individual situation.
