Hi all,

I've posted this to the Retirement Investing board, but wanted to post here as well- to get any insights from the Tax Strategies board since I'm self-employed.

I'm in the process of making a decision to move 401K money from a former employer, and would like to consider the pros and cons between:

• rolling that 401K to a Rollover IRA, or

• moving it into my self-employed 401K (which may be something like moving it into a 'new employer's plan' but SE 401Ks may have special advantages & disadvantages).

For the purpose of bounding this question, I'd be moving what are already Fidelity funds from the old employer's 401K directly to Fidelity for the new choice (either a Fidelity Rollover IRA or my SE 401K already with Fidelity).
