Getting Rollovers Right: Webinar

Webinar Chapters

    As people change jobs, one constant stays the same: the importance of rolling over your 401k properly into an IRA. Today’s workers may need to execute a rollover anywhere from 5 to 10 times in their working life, and there are many pitfalls to the process.

    This webinar will look at the primary reasons to properly manage a rollover and the increasing options with the advent of automated investments. Rollovers should not only be seen as an opportunity to preserve hard-earned retirement money, but also as a chance to reduce fees and consolidate and diversify one’s portfolio.
