Another option may be ..... if she has or can open a self-directed Traditional IRA at a brokerage firm, she can then request her company to directly roll-over the $42K to the IRA account. There will be no immediate tax consequences but she may have mandatory RMD withdrawals depending if she is over 70 1/2 years of age. Also if she is under 59 1/2 and she withdraws the funds there will be a 10% penalty in addition to her "regular taxes" This also assumes she qualifies for a Trad IRA and can adequately manage her investments as a previous poster noted.
Without knowing her age this strategy may or may not be prudent.

Just food for thought.
