Investors are permitted to transfer or roll over their funds in Roth IRA between different financial organizations without inviting any tax penalties. However, the per annum number of transfers is restricted to one only. They are also permitted to utilize their existing funds in IRA for funding their self directed IRA.
You need to pay penalties for making withdrawals before you reach the age of retirement. Moreover, if you intend having a rollover, you are strongly suggested to decide on a direct rollover rather than an indirect one. The latter come with preserving requirements plus carry the threat of inviting penalties on account of premature withdrawals.
IRA-to-IRA transfers form the most widespread way of setting up self directed IRAs with funds fit for exiting. You can set up a fresh account with an IRA custodian that has the approval of IRS. On getting your consent, the custodian asks for transferring IRA funds from your present Roth IRA. Following this, the custodian is allowed to accept funds for investing the same as per your directives.

The table below is meant to help you assess the benefits of various retirement accounts along with respective tax advantages.
As a number of different kinds of retirement plans come with “Roth Options”, a Roth IRA would include the same advantages and drawbacks as conventional IRAs as far as the functioning of the table goes.
