Should I roll over my traditional IRA into my Roth IRA at 60 years old?
80% of people found this answer helpful

Because we handle over 90% of IRA money with our current clients, we look at this question all the time. The first thing is critical, you must have a future tax plan built for you for when you hit 70 1/2 years old. Why? Because this is the time when the IRS wants you to take your RMD (Required Minimum Distribution) whether you need the money or not. The IRS wants you to start paying taxes, so we look at your current IRA/401k monies to see if we think it will be $500,000 in total by the time you hit RMD age. Now, this is based on current tax laws, especially with regards to individual deductions that are currently in place, however, if you future income needs are such that between the RMD (assuming it is $500,000 or less in total balances) you must take and social security, that the total covers your needs and wants, then you should be close to not having to pay taxes anyway. I generally love Roth Conversions spread out over a five-year period to control being bumped up too high to the next income tax brackets. We also may consider and utilize IUL (Index Universal Life) Insurance to simulate a Roth Conversion future tax free income strategy. So if you think you won't hit that $500,000 IRA/401k number by 70 1/2, you may not have to do a Roth Conversion at all. But if you think the current tax laws will change and future taxes will be higher, then a Roth conversion could be a great strategy. I just wouldn't do a full Roth Conversion in one year, spread it out over at least five years
