Chester asks:

<<My question is this. If my 401(k) assets (stock of various companies) are with the same custodian as are my IRAs (Schwab), can I simply roll over the 401(k) shares into an IRA without liquidating them?>>

Almost certainly no. BUT -- On very rare occasions it's possible when the custodian and plan administrator are one and the same. So, ask Schwab. My bet is the answer will be you cannot do so because the 401k and the IRA are two different vehicles or accounts.

Regards..Pixy
