Rollover IRA

Simplify your retirement savings

Having multiple retirement accounts means you’ve done a great job of saving. But it could also mean multiple statements and varying terms and conditions.

Rollover to an IRA*

Rolling over – or moving – your savings from a workplace retirement plan into an IRA with The Principal allows you to:

  • Continue savings for retirement
  • Invest in a broad range of investment products
  • Enjoy the potential of tax-deferred growth
  • Combine multiple accounts to simplify monitoring and management

An IRA can be a great way to save and invest

With an IRA, you achieve greater control and flexibility of your retirement savings.  Consider an IRA when you’re:

  • Changing jobs
  • Preparing to retire soon
  • Enjoying retirement and needing to turn savings into income
  • Transitioning to self-employment
  • Wanting easier tracking and management of your savings
