“The decision to move your retirement nest egg or stay put is an important one. In many cases, you don't have to act immediately upon switching jobs or retiring. Take the time to assess your options. Ask questions and do your homework to determine what is best for you.” Read the details from FINRA at: http://www.finra.org/Investors/ProtectYourself/InvestorAlerts/RetirementAccounts/P436001?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FINRAInvestorAlerts+%28FINRA+Investor+Alerts%29
