What do I get with this Rollover IRA?

Every Schwab account comes with investment help and guidance. With this account, you'll get:

A rollover of retirement plan assets to an IRA is not your only option. Carefully consider all of your available options which may include but not be limited to keeping your assets in your former employer's plan; rolling over assets to a new employer's plan; or taking a cash distribution (taxes and possible withdrawal penalties may apply). Prior to a decision, be sure to understand the benefits and limitations of your available options and consider factors such as differences in investment related expenses, plan or account fees, available investment options, distribution options, legal and creditor protections, the availability of loan provisions, tax treatment, and other concerns specific to your individual circumstances.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great IRA For A Small Fry Investor Like Me! I'm a low income worker who doesn't have a lot of money to invest. I wanted to start growing something for my retirement, and Schwab has been a great place for me. I looked at other firms, but simply couldn't afford the $1000, $2500, or even $10000 minimums required to buy in to some of their funds. It would take me forever to save that much, and I'd likely be stuck in some all-in-one starter fund with higher fees. Schwab has a great selection of funds that I've been able to invest in with as little as a $100 initial investment, with no load and no fee. Subsequent investments have been made easy by being able to link my local checking account to my IRA. I am a total beginner when it comes to investing, and I have had no trouble navigating the site and using the various tools to find and compare funds. If you are a small time nickel-and-dime investor like me, then Schwab can work for you too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Schwab works for me! I have a fairly good background in financial matters, so my review may not be for the novice. I opened my IRA roll over account about 30 years ago and have had no regrets with Schwab's handling of my assets ever. Obviously the lower fees they charge now compared to many years ago has pleased me. They provide a wide range of products and many educational courses for the newbie.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Retirement Review Offered I was with Schwab for many years. The webpage offered a complimentary retirement review. When I called I was told that was only for managed accounts despite the fact I had a substantial sum at Schwab. I needed guidance and had to leave Schwab to receive it at a competitor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why are we rating a roth ira? Typical Schwab product - you buy it and you are on your own. Oh, I did get a phone call soon after opening it, some guy that sounded and acted like NY Mafioso, asking where I was going to get the money to fund it, now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Website is first-rate. Have moved from other online brokerages because this site the easiest and most complete for me. Tying in a checking account means I have all my financial transactions at same place to avoid confusion and accelerate transfers and review buys and sells. I love Schwab! J

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am doing AOK I have been with Schwab for 0ver 30 years. Even before I open Schwab accounts, I knew and was convinced that no broker will be there to make my financial decisions for me. I never wanted them to. So I learned to invest myself. Contrary to common thinking, I don't think I spend lot of time doing it. Even when I was working full time as a busy doctor, I was investing myself. On and of I need some technical advises, I get it from Schwab without any problem. All in all I am very happy I have been with Schwab in the last 30+ years. I have been listening to MR Schwab's advise since the beginning of my investing activities: "have faith in the market."
