Roll Over Your 401(k)

We help to make rolling over an old retirement savings plan from a former employer easy for you.

Now that you and your employer have parted ways, you have options regarding your 401(k) account. U.S. Bank and U.S Bancorp Investments can help you take advantage of a rollover to an IRA. A rollover may not only help preserve the tax-advantaged retirement earnings you've worked so hard to build, but may also help you put the money to work for your future and your family.

Other options include cashing out your 401(k), leaving the money in the former employer’s plan or rolling it into your new employer’s plan.

If you hold multiple retirement accounts at one or more institutions, consolidating them all into a single IRA account may help simplify the management of your retirement savings.

  • An IRA rollover may provide you with the freedom to invest your money your way. Like a 401(k), an IRA has the potential to help keep retirement money growing tax-deferred, but with two possible advantages – flexibility and control.

    The potential benefits of rolling your employer retirement plan assets to an IRA can include:

    • A broad range of investment choices
    • The option of one-on-one guidance and regular review of your investments
    • The opportunity to consolidate other accounts, consolidate the management of your investments and simplify tax reporting
    • After your death, flexible options for withdrawals with potential tax benefits for your beneficiaries
    • Additional strategies that can be customized to help meet your specific needs

    With an IRA at either U.S. Bank or U.S. Bancorp Investments, you can help you choose from many investment options, and you'll have the ability to easily monitor and make changes as your needs and goals change. A rollover of qualified plan assets into an IRA is not your only option. Before deciding whether to keep an existing plan, or roll assets into an IRA, be sure to consider potential benefits and limitations of all options. These include total fees and expenses, range of investment options available, penalty-free withdrawals, availability of services, protection from creditors, RMD planning, and taxation of employer stock. Discuss rollover options with your tax advisor for tax considerations.

  • Individuals who have changed jobs or retired and have left savings in a former employer’s plan may be eligible to roll retirement savings to their new employer’s workplace savings plan [i.e., 401(k), 403(b), governmental 457(b)] or to an IRA.

  • To roll funds from an old 401(k) account into an IRA, you’ll need your account number(s) and recent statements. If you don’t have that information on hand, contact your former employer. In addition, you’ll need to complete required paperwork from your former employer, and paperwork to establish your rollover IRA at either U.S. Bank or U.S. Bancorp Investments.
