Welcome to Joffrey Smith Financial Group, where we guide you through the crucial decision-making that comes with 401(k) rollovers. Navigating the landscape of retirement planning is essential for securing your financial future, and a rollover will weigh heavily into that plan.
Individuals turning age 73 in 2023 will need to take their first RMD distribution by April 1 of the following year. However, if you are still employed at your RMD age, you may be able to delay your first RMD until April 1 of the year after you retire. A solid foundation begins with comprehending your existing 401(k) plan. We break down its crucial components, ensuring you're equipped with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions. Some things you should know include:
There are 4 basic options for rolling over your 401(k):
Option 1 - Rollover to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or Roth IRA
Option 2 - Rollover to Your New Employer's 401(k) Plan
Option 3 - Leave Your 401(k) Where It Is
Option 4 - Cash Out Your 401(k) Plan
There are potential tax consequences so you need to be informed before making a decision.
Ultimately, whether rolling over a 401(k) from a former employer to an IRA is the right choice depends on your individual financial situation, goals, and preferences. Joffrey Smith can provide personalized guidance and education based on your specific circumstances to help you make an informed decision.
