Should You Roll Over Your 401(k)?

If you have money in a 401(k) from a past employer, you’re probably wondering what you should do with it. You have four choices: Keep it in your previous employer’s plan, roll it over to your current employer’s plan, roll it over into an IRA, or cash it out.

• Access to your money
• Investment choices
