  • When completing the forms, make sure you indicate direct rollover.
  • Instruct your employer to make the check payable to: OFI Global Trust Company, For Benefit Of (FBO) [your name].
  • Return the forms to the benefits office.

2. Access the Oppenheimer Funds IRA Account Establishment Kit and complete.

That's All You Have To Do

We'll contact your retirement plan custodian and request transfer of your retirement assets to your new OppenheimerFunds account. When the transaction is complete, we'll send you a confirmation showing:

  • Investment date
  • Dollar amount transferred
  • Your fund selections
  • Share price at which your assets were invested.

Low annual maintenance fee, $15 or $10 for accounts $50,000 or higher.1

Please Note: Eligibility requirements apply to a Roth IRA.


1 Sales charges may also apply. Note: Most retirement plan custodians respond quickly to transfer requests. However, we want to ensure that your instructions are followed, so if we don't receive your money within 30 days of our transfer request, we'll continue to remind your custodian until we've safely completed the transfer.
