Rated 4 out of 5 by from Linking IRA account to external accounts I was broaching the time in retirement where I i was at a point in my retirement where i want to take out monthly income distibution to an external account. I first went to the money link to set up the new account. When I tried on line it wouldn't let me link online. So I tried chat. The agent told me I had to set up via a form and fax back. She sent me the IRA distribution form which I started filling out but it was looking for specific distribution information which I wasn't ready with. So I called schwab, the agent on the phone walked through the steps of connecting the IRA account with the external account I already set up (via my spouses account). That seemed to be the problem is the account is associated to the profile. So now set up and I can either do one time or recurring distributions also indicating taxes to be withheld.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roth IRA Several years ago we decided to move some of our regular IRA money into Roth IRAs. We completed the transaction over a period of several years to spread out the taxes. The process was simple and now we have a portion of our retirement money that has been growing tax free and will be available for when we need it. The taxes on our RMDs are now lower because we reduced their value but kept and increased our IRA savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IRA conversion to Roth IRA I decided to roll over a couple of holding in an IRA account over to a Roth IRA for the current tax year. I contacted my local Schwab financial advisor who helped guide me through the process. I think in future tax years I'll be able to do this on my own, but I very much appreciated the personal assistance from Schwab for this 'first time' conversion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bill Pay and Brokerage Well integrated, Lousy Rate I really like using Schwab Bank's Bill Pay. It's easy to move income from brokerage and IRA accounts to the checking account, although the way below market interest rate has me moving all excess cash to an external account. Minor quibble, I wish there were a direct link to bill pay from the Summary web page. The outside ATM re-imbursement feature is great.
