<<You're making what strikes me as a sensible and mature decision, and fortunately the system will also make this an easy one.>>

Here, here! Also heavily consider converting this traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. Given you age, your probable past earnings income, and tax bracket, it's a no brainer. Plus, with the next 50 years ahead of you, that "measly" 2k can become several million all tax free. To quote Austin Powers "shag me baby".
