If you have changed jobs or have a 401(k) from a previous employer you may want to consider rolling over your retirement assets into a Merchants and Farmers Bank Rollover IRA.
A Rollover IRA allows you to make investment decisions for your assets rather than being limited to your previous employer’s options and avoids the IRS penalty that you would have to pay for taking a cash distribution.
