You may be able to gain greater control over how you manage and invest your retirement savings with an in-service distribution. By using this option, you may be able to transfer assets from your workplace 401(k) into a personal IRA while you are still employed. IRAs often provide access to more investment options, which can be important in planning a confident retirement.

There are situations when assets should be left in a 401(k) and we will review potential drawbacks, including possible tax consequences, creditor protection, fees and other considerations.
