Retirement rollovers at M1

What is a rollover?

It’s common to collect employer-sponsored retirement accounts over the course of a career, such as a 401(k) or 403(b). You can “roll over” such accounts into a self-directed M1 IRA anytime, without penalty.

M1 supports direct and indirect rollovers

You can choose to have your provider mail a check with your retirement funds directly to M1 for a direct rollover, or have it sent to you for an indirect rollover.

Roll over in 3 steps

Roll over step 1

Open an M1 IRA account

You’ll need your new account number for the next step.

Roll over step 2

Initiate your rollover

Have your account provider write a check payable to Apex Clearing FBO [Your Name], with your name and new M1 IRA account number printed in the memo line.

Roll over step 3

Start investing

Once your retirement funds land in your new M1 IRA (1-2 weeks), you have everything you need to build and execute your own automated, self-directed investing strategy.

Use M1 to unlock your long-term wealth

Avoid management fees

Employer-sponsored accounts often charge fees that can eat into your earnings. M1 accounts are self-directed, with no management or commission fees. M1 Finance, LLC does not charge commission, trading, or management fees for self-directed brokerage accounts. You may still be charged other fees such as M1’s platform fee, regulatory fees, account closure fees, or ADR fees. For a complete list of fees M1 may charge visit M1’s Fee Schedule. 

Broad investment options

The M1 platform offers a wide range of stocks, ETFs, and pre-built portfolios tailored to common investment approaches.
