<<but I'm considering rolling over some or all of this money if it's possible to invest tax-deferred money in individual stocks rather than in funds.>>HOWEVER ! ! ! !I am assuming the money is still in the original 401(k) plan, but is now held in the plan under your name.IF you are under 59 1/2, and are considering a withdrawal, a QDRO distribution qualifies as one of the 10% penalty exceptions. That means if you take the money as a lump sum distribution, you'll have income taxes, but not the additional penalty.The minute those funds hit an IRA, you lose the exception. Distribution prior to age 59 1/2 will have income taxes + penalty.(However, since you are FOOLISH and will use the funds for retirement so the above was not a necessary comment)
