The short answer is “yes.” Changing jobs is common today, and many people end up with more than one type of retirement account. The key is to leverage each account’s benefits and restrictions to maximize your retirement savings.
First, know the limits. The 2015 contribution limit for a 401(k) is $18,000, or $24,000 if you’re 50 and over. You may deposit $5,500 in combined Roth or traditional IRAs for 2015, or $6,500 if you’re 50 and over.
