Roth Conversion Analyzer

If you already have a traditional IRA or a qualified employer-sponsored plan, such as a 401(k) plan, you may qualify to convert it to a Roth IRA. Depending upon your personal financial situation, a Roth IRA conversion could potentially provide a tax-adjusted benefit over time, provided you meet the eligibility requirements. Whether you would be better off leaving your funds in your current plan or moving all or some of the savings to a new Roth IRA will depend primarily on your tax bracket before and during retirement.
