I have approximately $17,000 in an employee pension plan from an employer I left one year ago. I am 100% vested. I am now self employed and don't know what my options are regarding these funds. Can I withdraw them and hold them in my own IRA? I don't want to leave them with the employer, but not sure exaction what the procedure is?

You can have them rolled over into an IRA. You're old plan will tell you what procedures to follow.
