Just found your post. Since you said that you didn't need the income now. Rollover to an IRA where you have total control of the investments. If you can find the money to pay the taxes on it, then convert to a Roth sounds real good. You might even think about having more than one Roth, so that you could have different beneficiaries for each Roth. This way you can still control the money right up to the death of your husband. The value of each Roth could be different depending who the designated beneficiary is. Not know all of your information is a little difficult to give you more ideas. It sounds as if you are in good financial situation. If you care to share more information to me at gsitpps@iquest.net I would be glad to give you more ideas.
