Chances are, you’ll change jobs several times over the course of your career. Fortunately, 401(k) plans are portable. If you switch jobs before retirement, you usually can choose among several things to do with your 401(k):
• Leave the money in your former employer’s plan;
• Roll over the money to your new employer’s plan, if the plan accepts transfers;
• Roll over the money into an individual retirement account (IRA); or
• Take the cash value of your account.
With the first three alternatives, you won’t lose the contributions you’ve made, your employer’s contributions if you’re vested, or earnings you’ve accumulated in your old 401(k). And, your money will maintain its tax-deferred status until you withdraw it. You do have some time to consider your options and complete transactions. By law, you must have at least 30 days to decide what to do with your 401(k) when you switch jobs.
Rollovers are not suitable for everyone. Please consider all options prior to making a decision.
