Ep. 44 – How Do IRA and 401k Rollovers Work?

How do I move money between my retirement accounts without getting taxed?

This is a question we often hear from our clients. You may have multiple retirement accounts, and consolidating them or moving your money into a more manageable account might be appealing to you. But there are rules and limitations to how you can transfer money between them.

In this episode of Retirement In Action on the Secure Your Retirement podcast, we walk you through the process of doing a 401k or IRA rollover, explain why you might want to do one, and when you’ll be eligible.

In this episode find out:

  • What a rollover is
  • Why a rollover might benefit you
  • The difference between a trustee-to-trustee transfer vs. a 60-day rollover
  • Why we don’t recommend using a 60-day rollover as a personal loan
  • What makes you eligible for a rollover
  • How to execute a rollover
