The 401(k) choices at my company are not so great. They only hit about 18-19% return last year when the S&P was up over 30%. Back when I wasn't Foolish I would have thought 18% return was pretty good. Not anymore.

What I didn't know when I rolled my 401(k) into my new employers plan was that I could have rolled it over into a self directed IRA rollover account. Then I could buy whatever I want instead of being limited to 4 or 5 mediocre mutual funds. My brokerage firm offers IRA rollover plans but I didn't know what I was doing!

My question is, can I rollover my 401(k) account into an IRA rollover account now even though I haven't left my company and am still contributing to it?

I hope the answer is yes!

Fool On!
