My question is -- can I take that money and put it elsewhere, manage it myself? As I have other stock invesments, I'd really just like to split it between, say, an S&P index and a NASDAQ index, continue to make monthly contributions, and not really have to worry about it.
You can roll the account elsewhere, but there are special rules with respect to a SIMPLE during your first 2 years of participation. See page 56 of IRS Publication 590, which you can download from http://www.irs.gov/forms_pubs/index.html.
You will not be able to make additional contributions to the SIMPLE since you're no longer working for the employer who sponsors it.
