401(k) Rollover Decision Kit – 7 Vital Factors to Consider
While our grandparents may have worked one job their entire lives and retired with a company pension, those days are long gone. It’s more likely that you’ve worked for a variety of different companies throughout your career, leaving a trail of old 401(k)s that you really don’t know what to do with. Do you leave them where they are? Do you move it into your personal account, or to a traditional IRA or Roth IRA (a “rollover”)? What about the tax implications? Before you make a decision about what to do with your old 401(k) or 403(b) accounts, or whatever retirement plan you have at work, you need to understand what your options are.
To help you out, we’ve created a free decision kit that addresses these (and other) issues. In this e-booklet, we talk about what we believe are the Seven Vital Factors you need to consider when you’re trying to figure out what to do with the money that’s in your old company retirement plans. Whether you’re headed into retirement, or you’re moving on to a different job, either way, you’ve got some important decisions to make. Allow us to give you some guidance.

Different types of investments and/or investment strategies involve varying levels of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment or investment strategy (including the investments purchased and/or investment strategies devised by LCG) will be either suitable or profitable for a client's or prospective client's portfolio, thus, investments may result in a loss of principal. Accordingly, no client or prospective client should assume that the presentation (or any component thereof) serves as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized advice from LCG or from any other investment professional.

IRA withdrawals will be taxed at ordinary income rates. Withdrawals prior to age 59½ may also be subject to a 10% penalty tax.
Roth IRA distributions of principal from a Roth IRA are tax-free; however, any earnings will be taxed at ordinary income rates and a 10% penalty tax will apply if withdrawn prior to age 59½ or within five years of the date the Roth IRA was established, whichever is longer.

It is important to keep in mind that investments in fixed income products are subject to liquidity (or market) risk, interest rate risk (bonds ordinarily decline in price when interest rates rise and rise in price when interest rates fall), financial (or credit) risk, inflation (or purchasing power) risk and special tax liabilities. Interest may be subject to the alternative minimum tax. Treasury securities are backed by full faith and credit of the U. S. Government but are subject to inflation risk.
ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund.
Before investing, carefully consider an exchange-traded fund’s and/or mutual fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. To obtain a prospectus or summary prospectus, which contains this and other information, call your financial advisor. Read the prospectus carefully before investing. .
