A new job presents an opportunity for your career, personal and financial growth. It is important to take advantage of any company benefits, including health and life insurance, and any retirement plans.

Before deciding whether to retain assets in an employer plan or roll over to an IRA an investor should consider various factors including, but not limited to, investment options, fees and expenses, services, withdrawal penalties, protection from creditors and legal judgments, required minimum distributions, possession of employer stock and reduction/elimination of guaranteed benefits from the pension plan.
