BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J. ( TheStreet) -- By the time most people reach their 40s they have accumulated multiple investment accounts. They don't plan for this to happen; it just does. Workers change jobs more frequently, so many have multiple former employer 401(k) plans and IRA rollover accounts. They also end up with multiple taxable accounts after years of opening various mutual fund accounts because the funds were featured in a magazine. You know the titles by heart -- "Best Funds to Own Now."So why does it matter if they have accounts strewn all over?
|Your accumulated accounts are probably a mess. It's time for a spring cleaning -- before spring is gone and months or years of money-making with it.|
