There is a long-standing question I have.... I've always been good about opening both IRAs and 401ks and have made several career moves over the past 10 years.

I now have multiple 401Ks that I've kept at various firms and monitor. Seems it would be easier to roll those all into my existing IRA to manage them.

Are there distinct advantages / disadvantages to doing so? Clearly, they would be "rolled" with no posession, so they stay tax deferred in any case. I've never heard a good argument for one vehicle vs. the other when either are available.......
