Is there an easier way to manage my retirement savings?
[This article was archived on 10/14/2017.]
If you answer "yes" to any of the three questions in the box to the right, consolidating your retirement accounts into a Mutual of America Rollover IRA, a variable annuity contract, may make it easier to manage your retirement savings.
In addition, when you directly transfer your assets into a Mutual of America Rollover IRA, your money continues to grow tax-deferred until you withdraw it, typically at retirement.1 In contrast, if you take your retirement plan distribution in a check, wire transfer or direct deposit, 20% will automatically be deducted for current federal income taxes, and depending on your age, you may be required to pay an early withdrawal penalty.
Most important, when you open a Rollover IRA with Mutual of America, you'll continue to work with a company you can trust. Since 1945, Americans have turned to Mutual of America to help them plan for their retirement and meet their long-term financial objectives. Today, as in the past, Mutual of America remains financially strong and is rated among the strongest companies in the life insurance industry by the major independent rating agencies.2
Before rolling over funds from plans with other providers, you should review the accounts you have with them to determine the fees and expenses you currently pay and whether there are any surrender charges that may result and to ensure that it is in your best interest to roll over your other accounts to a Rollover IRA.
