Consolidation makes sense, it just does. Consolidation will not affect equity performance, but is a matter of convenience more than anything else. A few clicks and you can see all you've got.

  • If your 401(k)s are not active, then you can certainly exercise a 401(k) rollover to your current IRA accounts. The paperwork will be issued from the Plan Administrator carrying the 401(k). The Plan Administrator of the 401(k) will ask you how you would like the check of the proceeds be made out. The most popular is what the IRS calls a Direct Rollover. Here, the check(s) are made out to the 'new' or 'current' custodian with FBO 'Your Name'. Some Plan Administrators will send the check directly to the 'new' or 'current' custodian, but most send the proceeds to you at which point you have 60 days from the date on the check to get the proceeds into your IRA. It's a relatively simple process.
  • Regarding the other accounts, consolidation is quite easy as the paperwork from the custodian you choose to use will provide the paperwork. If a new account is being created (and I am assuming you are going to manage these assets yourself), an Application (or go online), Account Transfer Form that will transfer IN KIND the current stocks and mutual funds to the new/current account. It is a VERY SIMPLE PROCESS. Once the paperwork/online forms are in good order. the IN KIND transfer normally is completed in eight days or less.
  • Low funds fees are great and if you are pleased then 'stay the course'. WHY 33 MUTUAL FUNDS? Just Asking!
  • As far as to 'WHERE' the consolidation be moved to, have your pick. TD Ameritrade, Fidelity, and Schwab are good choices.
