Greetings, Ty, and welcome. You wrote:I had a 457 plan. THen was put on permanet disability retirement.i;m done working and the law (so they say)says i can only roll over to another 457. If i; m not going into the gov't or any where else what do i "have to do with the money". Im 51 years oldYour plan will determine your specific options, but in your case you may take the money now and pay ordinary income taxes on whatever you take. Because this is not a qualified retirement plan, this year you may not transfer it to an IRA. On January 1, you may do so, but then you must play by IRA rules. Those restrict withdrawals prior to age 59 1/2 by imposing a penalty in most cases. There are eight ways to avoid that as discussed in our IRA area at http://www.fool.com/money/allaboutiras/allaboutiras01.htm. You could use the "substantially equal periodic payment" rule or (if you qualify under stringent criteria) the disability rule. I suggest if your plan allows you to access the money while leaving it there, do so. It allows you greater flexibility than does a transfer to an IRA after January 1 of next year.Regards..Pixy
