Based upon response advice in an earlier post, I decided to roll over my federal 401K into a traditional IRA and take about $20K out of my $179K balance to live on while I am unemployed. I looked at the law and the IRS advises a traditional IRA is available from a bank, savings and loan, or federally insured credit union. I went into the Bank of America to roll my 401K into a traditional IRA but they offered a "CD / IRA" which had a specified term. The representative said she felt this was the traditional IRA.Is this a traditional IRA?If not, how do I get one? I just passed the California bar after being unemployed for more than a year but it may take several months to find a job and I am almost out of cash (so I need to tap the 401K).
