More Provisions For Retirement Funds
A Roth conversion option, which allows a worker from any one of three qualified retirement savings plans or accounts to rollover his assets into an internal or in-plan Roth IRA, is just one of the provisions of The Small Business Jobs and Credit Act that permits workers who have 401Ks, as well as employees enrolled into government-provided 457 plans and 403Bs to bulk up their retirement funds.

With this, employees can save more for retirement after taxes because they can avoid rolling over assets into an outside Roth account.
