And because of the Great Resignation, you or someone you know might be changing jobs even more

It’s an extreme case of out of sight and out of mind. Is your old 401(k) in there somewhere, left behind at a job you're no longer with?

One huge benefit with an IRA is you get to choose how your money is invested, not your old employer.

If you want to consolidate your old 401(k) and have more options with how you invest, it may be time to roll them over into an IRA.
