For the amount in that account, and the amount you could claim, why not just leave the account open? Unless you are ready to retire, or already retired, you would then have a Roth IRA ready to accept a contribution on short notice, or anytime, should you wish to contribute to it, or to roll something such as a normal IRA, or part of a normal IRA, or 401(k) into it.

Sometimes it makes sense to contribute to a Roth IRA.
