Whether it’s an old employer-sponsored retirement account or an IRA, you can roll over your retirement savings to GuideStone®. By bringing all of your retirement savings to one place, it may be easier for you to manage your accounts and monitor your progress.

Is a rollover right for you?

As you make this investment decision, it’s important to consider all of your options.

Roll over to your GuideStone retirement plan

If your employer offers a GuideStone retirement plan, you may be eligible to bring your previous retirement account(s) with you and take advantage of:

  • Continued tax-deferred growth on savings
  • Portfolio diversification through GuideStone investment options
  • Simplified asset management through consolidation to a single account
  • Extensive retirement and investment educational resources
  • Exclusion of eligible distributions from taxes for ministers under the minister’s housing allowance
Roll over to a GuideStone IRA
If your employer does not offer a GuideStone retirement plan or if an IRA is a better fit for you, moving your previous retirement account(s) to a GuideStone IRA will provide you with:
  • Advantageous tax benefits
    • Traditional IRA contributions are generally tax-deductible
    • Roth IRA withdrawals are tax-free at retirement on eligible contributions
  • Portfolio diversification through GuideStone investment options
  • Simplified asset management through consolidation to GuideStone
Maintain the retirement plan with your former employer

If you are able to leave your money in your former employer’s retirement plan, it may offer you a variety of benefits, including:

  • Investment options that may not be available through GuideStone
  • Option to roll over in the future following additional research

It is important to note that not all employers allow former employees to utilize their employer-sponsored retirement plans. Let us help you evaluate your options before making a decision.

What are key considerations before I move an account?
  • Will I have access to financial advice and education?

Be sure to consider all of your available options before rolling over your retirement assets. It is important to consider all of the potential advantages and disadvantages of rolling over your retirement assets to an IRA, including the different investment options that are available to you as well as the services, fees, expenses, withdrawal restrictions and tax consequences of rolling over your assets to an IRA. Other options are available besides rolling over your employer-sponsored retirement plan, including leaving the account with your previous employer. An employer-sponsored retirement plan may offer advantages investors can’t get if they roll the money into an IRA.
