What is a Rollover IRA?
It is a specific type of Individual Retirement Account (IRA) designed for people that may be changing jobs, have retirement assets in their former employer’s retirement plan, and want to continue to invest in a tax-advantaged account under their control. A Rollover IRA allows you to consolidate your retirement balances held in former employer plans to better manage your money, monitor your savings progress, and better plan for retirement.
