Transferring funds from another IRA or 401K?
Transfers of 401K and other IRAs are generally not subject to deadlines if the funds are simply moving from one trustee to another. You’ll still need to complete the steps above — opening an account with both Goldstar and the Cornerstone Fund — and you’ll need to complete the appropriate rollover/transfer form —
• Traditional IRA Transfer/Direct Rollover
• Roth IRA Transfer
