Who is eligible for an IRA? Most taxpayers who have earned income are eligible for an IRA. Some high-income individuals are excluded from Roth IRAs. Check with your tax advisor for complete details.
What about Spousal IRAs? Your spouse can have his or her own IRA even if they don’t earn income.
What are Rollover IRAs? A rollover IRA can be established when you have a distribution or transfer from a previous retirement plan to a new plan. It is very common for people who change employers to take their 401 (k) balance and “roll it over” into a Self-Directed IRA.
Rollover Accounts If you are planning to retire soon or change jobs, you may be about to receive a distribution from your present company’s pension or profit sharing plan. Without careful planning, you could lose a significant part of your distribution to the government in taxes.
If you want to defer taxation on the distribution and still keep control of your investment options, it is important that you don’t take the distribution in hand. If you follow very specific rules, you can roll over the balance without a current tax liability. Your BOT Investments Team can handle the details for you.
Transferring an Existing IRA If your current IRA does not allow you the flexibility of investment choices that pursue your objectives, you may want to consider transferring your assets into one of the IRA options offered by LPL Financial.
With an IRA Transfer, you do not take possession of your existing IRA assets. Instead, your BOT Investments Team will help you prepare a Custodial Transfer Authorization form authorizing the tax-free transfer of all or a portion of your current account. The assets will be transferred on your behalf to an IRA opened with LPL Financial.
