One way to take control of your retirement savings is to roll over your plan from a former employer
When you roll over a retirement plan, you generally don’t pay tax on it until you withdraw it at retirement. By rolling over, you’re saving for your future and your money continues to grow tax-deferred.
Also, most pre-retirement payments you receive from a retirement plan or IRA can be “rolled over” by depositing the payment into another retirement plan or IRA within 60 days.

In income: rules covering contribution limits, earned income limits and withdrawal parameters
Separate accounts: no limit to how many IRAs you can establish, but contribution limits will apply across all of your accounts
In-plan rollover: aka an in-plan Roth conversion which involves moving pretax retirement funds from your work sponsored 401k or 403b to a designated Roth account
2-year Rule: the account must have been set up and funded 2 years prior to the rollover date
