Advantages of rolling 401k to IRA?
I have a very small 401k sitting in my old employers plan, growing at 8+%
I had planned on moving it to a new employers plan when I get a new job, which will hopefully be within the next 6 months.
Other than more control over the investments (which I wouldn't really bother with now), would there be any advantage to rolling it over to an IRA with the same company? (Fidelity)
They keep 'suggesting' I do this, so there must be some advantages in it for them (investment / service fees etc).
(I don't want to put the $ into anything that isn't readily available in case I need it if I have problems getting a new job etc.)_
Any advice would be appreciated!
