A Rollover IRA is an account that allows you to move or rollover funds from your previous employer retirement plan to your personal IRA. An employer sponsored plan could be a 401(k), 401(a), 403(b), Thrift Savings Plan, 457 Plan, Simple IRA, SEP-IRA, Roth (IRA), Roth 401(k), defined benefit pension plan, profit-sharing plans, cash balance plans and Employee stock ownership plans (ESOP).
When you rollover these funds from an employer sponsored plan you preserve the tax deferred status of your investments and will not pay taxes or any early withdrawal penalties.

Avoid taxes and penalties — Allows you to rollover the funds tax-deferred and not paying any early withdrawal penalties at the time of transferring the funds.
Investment choices — Gives you many investment choices where you otherwise might be limited with your employer sponsored plan.
