teletran: "Actually, you can do a direct rollover from your employer's 401k to a Roth IRA account."This is not correct. As Crosenfield points out, you can do a trustee-to-trustee transfer directly to a traditional IRA, NOT a Roth IRA."You would need to contact the benefits department and the IRA company for the necessary rollover forms."Agreed."As long as you do a direct rollover and the money therefore never touches your hands, there would be no tax consequences." Once direct rollover is correctly understood, agreed. As Crosenfield points out, converting a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA will have tax consequences, although it can be done without penalty.Regards, JAFO
