Fidelity IRA and Roth IRA



Been lurking the money board for a while and have a question for y'all. I had two 401ks that got rolled over. One went to a traditional IRA and the other to a Roth IRA I called fidelity at one point and they said to just keep both. What are y'all's opinions on that? TIA.

if you are under 40 and average income I would convert the traditional to a roth. Otherwise I would probably leave it alone.If you do convert remember you will owe the income taxes.

I would guess your Fidelity accounts charge more than other similar accounts. Do some research. I did and am converting to Vanguard.

Run the conversion numbers so that you can make an informed decision regarding tax liability on conversion. Now is a good time to do this because you should know what your income will be for 2012. Keep in mind that you can convert some each year. ie: convert 1/2 before the end of the year and the other 1/2 in January to spread the tax over two years. (don't pay the tax out of the account)

Without any more detailed information about you, I would leave it as it currently is.
