Refworks is transitioning from "Legacy" to "New".
The Legacy RefWorks citation manager is slated to be retired sometime in 2018. For short-term projects, particularly if you are accustomed to using it, Legacy RefWorks is a good choice.
If you are embarking a long term project, such as a dissertation, and may not finish by the time the Legacy version disappears, you should open a New Refworks account. Likewise if you are working on a collaborative project, you may find New Refworks easier to use in sharing materials.

The RefWorks Legacy citation manager is expected to be retired in 2019.
RefWorks records are easily migrated into the New Refworks, but these are two separate tools -- separate accounts with separate logins.
Why use the New Refworks?
The New RefWorks has several features related to collaborative work that are not present in Legacy RefWorks: the ability to share collections (with access rights management), integration with Dropbox, de-duplication of references.
[New Refworks was "Flow" for a while; your Flow login will work in the New Refworks.]
