Subject:  Effect on Roth IRA when leaving US? Date:  3/22/2000  2:32 AM
Author:  BrianWJ Number:  20359 of 88051

I'm currently 20 years old and enrolled in college domestically. I'm interested in setting up a Roth IRA account. However, my concern is if I choose to live/work internationally at some other point in time during my life, what happens to my Roth IRA? If I was no longer a US citizen, would I have to close my Roth IRA, and if I wanted to transfer the account overseas, would I be able to do so?

If so, would I be subject to fees? (assuming perhaps, that I'm not over the age of 59 1/2, but I'm no longer a US citizen paying US income tax)

I'd appreciate any help or advice. :)
