Webinar: How to roll over your 401k into an individual retirement account
Beacon Financial Education is proud to present an information session on how to convert your 401k into an individual retirement account (IRA) online, from the comfort of your home! If you're an expat who has previously worked in the US, then this free webinar could be just what you've been looking for!
Personal finance webinar brought to you by Beacon
For the last couple of years, Beacon Financial Education has been regularly hosting financial awareness seminars in the cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Haarlem, Rotterdam, Almere, Eindhoven & Maastricht.
Although these seminars have been well attended, Beacon knew there was a larger group out there for whom it was either too far away or too inconvenient to travel into the city for a 1,5-hour session, even though the topics would be very relevant to them.
Financial education webinars have proven to be the ideal medium to educate Americans and US-connected persons in all corners of the Netherlands - and in other European countries as well - about organising their personal finances while living abroad.
Have you worked in the United States? If so, do you have a 401k? This season, Beacon Financial Education will host a number of webinars for Americans and expats from other countries who have worked in the US.
Take control of your finances
This webinar, for non-Americans with a 401k, explores why it would perhaps be beneficial for them to convert these retirement plans into an individual retirement account (IRA).
What to expect in the webinar
The webinar, brought to you by Beacon, will provide insights on how to take control of your 401k. This involves:
- Better investment choices
- Lower costs
- Flexibility of withdrawals
- More control
- Wealth transfer advantages
Dedicated to helping improve your financial health
Being predominantly well-educated and highly skilled, expats often have a better understanding of personal finance than the average person. However, that additional layer of working in multiple countries, having to do taxes in more than one country and having retirement plans in numerous countries, can complicate people’s financial planning for the future.
Internationals are increasingly concerned that they will not have the financial means to continue to live the lifestyle they currently have or envision for themselves in the future. Investing, for example, is considerably more challenging for someone working overseas, as is doing taxes, especially for Americans and those with a US nexus.
And lastly, expatriates who have worked in the United States often leave the country with their retirement money still stuck in a 401k. These are just some of the concerns the team at Beacon Financial Education is familiar with.
Being expats as well, Beacon shares your frustrations and worries. They apprehend the challenges you face, and, like you, they want to manage their wealth in the best possible way: to be financially healthy, financially free and financially independent.
