Opening an IRA or rolling over an old 401(k) or 403(b) plan to an IRA?

A financial advisor can help provide you with the information you need to decide if a traditional or Roth IRA best suits your financial goals.

If you are changing jobs or retiring, after reviewing the potential benefits and risks, it may make sense to consider a rollover of funds from your employer-based retirement plan.

Rollover assets to an IRA while still employed

In some retirement plans, you may be able to transfer assets from your workplace 401(k) into a personal IRA while you’re still employed. Ask your advisor to help you explore the pros and cons of an in-service IRA rollover strategy before you make a decision.

IRA contribution limits and eligibility

A financial advisor can keep you updated on IRA contribution limits, eligibility and tax deductibility. These may change year-to-year and vary based on income level and tax status.

Retirement plans for self-employed individuals and businesses

A range of retirement plans are available to address the retirement needs of you, your business and your employees.

Plans can offer an array of investment options: mutual funds, self-directed brokerage accounts, annuities, certificates or professionally managed accounts; investments vary by plan.

Retirement plans for employers of nonprofit organizations

Nonprofit organizations seeking retirement savings plans can select from the many available 403(b) plan investment options from Ameriprise Financial.
