My question is similar to this one, but slightly different:
According to that question above, it's not possible for somebody my age (28) to rollover a 401(k) to an IRA without actually leaving my job.
However, my company is changing plans in a few weeks (Nationwide to John Hancock) and I'm wondering if there is any loophole here I can exploit to get my money out of the plan and into an IRA. In other words, since Nationwide already has to transfer my money somewhere, is it possible to redirect to it to the tax-advantaged account of my choosing?
Although I will lose a very small amount of unvested employer match, the expense ratios on both our old plan and new plan are just way too high and the selections are way too small, especially with the economic uncertainty we're facing in the US right now.
