Vanguard

I'm considering moving IRAs to Vanguard.

What is the procedure?

Set up account?
Tell them to transfer?
Suggestions as to accounts for IRA and Roth for withdrawal from IRA and letting Roth just sit there for now?

Khan, call Vanguard and tell them what you want to do. They will guide you from there on transferring.

You can do everything online if you wish.

Go to https://personal.vanguard.com/us/home?fromPage=portal, click on the "open an account" link in the top right corner of the page. Answer a few questions (what type of IRA do you want to open, where is the money now, how do you want to invest the money in your new IRA, etc...). This will generate a form. Print it, sign it, mail it and Vanguard will take care of the rest. I just rolled over an IRA to Vanguard, it was that easy.

Give them a call first, Khan--they can snail-mail hard copy to you to sign, I'm sure.

Buy a printer from amazon.com and have it shipped to you. Don't forget to buy paper, envelopes, stamps, and a pen to write with as well.

You might want to make a photocopy of the application and account statements you are transferring. This is very helpful if some of the paperwork gets mislaid at Vanguard.

So buy an all-in-one printer that makes photocopies, scans, and prints.

I did this with telephone and snailmail because I'm old-fashioned. It worked fine.
I was transferring more than $250k from a 401k and immediately became one of their "more desirable" clients, which was nice too (I could consistently get the same person on the phone if I wanted).

I don't like the all in one machines... got a laser printer since they can sit for a long time and still work... and got it cheap when someone here posted about it... $100 for the B&W and IIRC about $150 for a color one.. still have both..




Speak of the devil... here is one for $69....

Khan,
Several months ago I did a similar thing and moved several Roth IRA's to Vanguard. Vanguard was great and sent me paperwork in the mail to sign and return for each of the transactions. One of the accounts (I think it was with Domini) required a Medallion guarantee which I was able to obtain from my credit union. My process took several weeks overall and went very smoothly. so far I'm likikng Vanguard and especially having all my Roth in one place. I may move a few non-IRA accounts over there eventually.

I use it mostly to print brokerage statements and airline boarding passes.

I have the Brother HL 5240. In 25 years I have had one Epson dot-matrix printer, one HP Laser, and now this Brother. I love it; and I print a lot so I can lie on the couch to read articles rather than sitting and staring at my screen.

Ha

How are you transfering this fund? If the ira fund is down and you are transferring to vanguard that is high. You might lose some money. Do you have a strategy? Just curious. My mil is in the same predicament as yours.
