Rollover IRA Disclosures

the Trust Company makes money creates some conflicts with your interests, so we operate under a special rule that requires us to act in your best interest and not put our interests ahead of yours.

The Trust Company provides you with an Investment Policy Statement that summarizes your specific needs, investment goals and expectations, serving as a guideline for designing your portfolio and for monitoring your financial plan on an ongoing basis. The Trust Company provides a Fee Schedule, and our fee, except for certain unique assets, is charged as a percentage of total assets in your account, so we receive more compensation as your account value grows. The Trust Company does not add a mark-up for securities trading in your account and does not currently offer proprietary products or products offered by an affiliate or engage in any fee-driven recommendations. If we were to pay a referral fee to a third-party, it is taken from our fee.

A rollover of retirement plan assets to an IRA is not your only option and is an important decision. Carefully consider all of your available options which may include but not be limited to keeping your assets in your former employer's plan; rolling over assets to a new employer's plan; or taking a cash distribution (taxes and possible withdrawal penalties may apply). A rollover of an existing IRA to an IRA at SCTC is also not your only option and is an important decision. Prior to a decision, be sure to understand the benefits and limitations of your available options and consider factors such as differences in investment related expenses, plan or account fees, available investment options, distribution options, legal and creditor protections, the availability of loan provisions, tax treatment, state law considerations, and other concerns specific to your individual circumstances. Depending on the type of account you have, there are different rules for withdrawals, penalties, and distributions. Please consider all these factors before opening your account, and please ask our Trust Company professionals if you have any questions regarding these factors prior to opening your account.
