Losing your job can be stressful in any economic environment. Between finding work, securing health insurance, and cutting expenses, rolling over an old 401(k) probably isn't a top priority. However, there are many reasons why it makes as much sense now as ever:
Your old 401(k) is subject to your previous employer's rules, restrictions, and paperwork. Rolling over can help you get control of your retirement savings.
While you should generally avoid making withdrawals from your retirement accounts prior to retiring, you may have greater flexibility to withdraw from your Rollover IRA than you would from your old 401(k).1
A T. Rowe Price Rollover IRA may provide you with a wider range of investment choices than your old 401(k).

An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. Although a money market fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in a money market fund.
1 You may take a withdrawal from your IRA at any time. However, a withdrawal from a Rollover IRA will generally be taxable as ordinary income. Additionally, the taxable portion of a withdrawal may be subject to an additional 10% early distribution penalty assessed by the IRS.
2 The principal value of the Retirement Funds is not guaranteed at any time, including at or after the target date, which is the approximate date when investors turn age 65. The funds invest in a broad range of underlying mutual funds that include stocks, bonds, and short-term investments and are subject to the risks of different areas of the market. The funds emphasize potential capital appreciation during the early phases of retirement asset accumulation, balance the need for appreciation with the need for income as retirement approaches, and focus more on income and principal stability during retirement. The funds maintain a substantial allocation to equities both prior to and after the target date, which can result in greater volatility.
