401(k) Rollover

You’ve moved to a new job, but left your 401(k) assets with your previous employer.

While that’s certainly the easiest course, it may not be the wisest. You could be missing out on the financial advantages of combining your retirement savings into one account, through a 401(k) to IRA conversion, or rollover. In many cases a 401(k) rollover IRA provides you more investment choices and a greater degree of control over your financial future. It’s simple to do even if you’d like to consolidate 401(k) accounts from more than one previous employer, as well as other IRAs.

A SunTrust retirement specialist can walk you through the process and assist you with the necessary paperwork. With all your 401(k) and IRA assets combined in a single SunTrust Rollover IRA, you’ll benefit from:

  • A wide range of investment options
  • A sharper focus on your retirement priorities
  • Ongoing investment guidance from a SunTrust Investment Services advisor
  • Professional management of all your assets

To contact a SunTrust advisor call 800.786.8787.

Consider these four options for your 401(k)

If you left your 401(k) with a former employer, you have four options:

  • Roll your assets into an IRA: This may give you a wider range of investment choices.
  • Consider annuities: An annuity can provide you with a guaranteed lifetime income.
  • Keep it in an employer plan: If you like your current employer’s plan, leave your money there.
  • Take a lump sum distribution: Your former employer will withhold 20 percent, and you may have to pay 10 percent for early withdrawal.

Find the right investments to pursue your goals

Our advisors can help you select from a wide array of solutions for your rollover IRA assets. They can offer tailored suggestions and ongoing guidance on retirement products from some of the best providers the industry has to offer, including products that offer guaranteed income for life.

Benefit from opening a new IRA

The primary purpose of an IRA is to help you save for retirement by providing significant tax advantages. Opening an IRA is key to helping you reach your retirement goals. To roll over your existing 401(k) to an IRA, or to open a new IRA, call an advisor at 800-786-8787 or stop by your local branch.
