If your mother-in-law has some investment acumen and the investment
choices with the retirement plan aren't exciting, then she is likely
to do much better investing on her own.
If she's an investment neophyte who would put the transfer into
money markets, she'd do better leaving it where it is.
If she has a heart condition and her parents died young, to take the money and run makes lots of sense. If her parents lived to be centenarians and she's in perfect health, maybe she'd do well to take an annuity type option.
So you see there are lots of factors involved in the choice of what
to do with a retirement nest egg.
Best wishes, Chris
