I suppose you do know that you can roll your 401k funds into an IRA (preferably at a brokerage), if your plan allows for that. Unfortunately, you may have missed their time limit for that. Mine was 4 months after I left.

I don't know why you are talking about the old 401k and the Roth IRA in the same proverbial breath. As long as you are making less than $120000? (single), $150000? (married), you can open a Roth IRA and deposit $2000/year. Since you indicate you have your own business, you should be able to open a Keogh or SEP-IRA, I believe, and stash lots more money.

2 cents worth, please
