When it comes to your IRA or 401(k) investment funds, you do have options, but to be honest, there aren’t many that won’t cost you money in the long run. Keeping your 401(k) with your employer is often allowed, but you won’t be able to contribute any more to your investment, and you could become vulnerable to fees and/or taxes. You could cash out, but this is simply an all-around bad idea. Cashing out your 401(k) before you retire could mean losing up to 40 percent of your investment to expensive fees and taxes.

Rolling to an IRA

For most people, rolling over your investment fund into an IRA is often the best solution. Offering a wide variety of investment options and low administration fees, IRAs allow investors to protect their investment for both long and short-term goals. Whether you roll your employer-based 401(k) into an existing IRA or establish a new fund, you’ll ensure that your retirement funds remain yours.
