Maybe I'm just paranoid, but the first thing I would do is consult an attorney about what effect, if any, the dissolution of the PC would have on my 401(k).

Depending on that advice, I'd consider whether the "new" employer will offer a 401(k), and whether I would be happy with the investment options it will offer compared to the ones I had in the old 401(k).

If I decided to do a rollover to an IRA, and if I was happy with the old 401(k) investments, I'd try to replicate them in the IRA.

I personally like Vanguard for low fees and a wide selection of index funds. But there are other places that might be about as good. I understand Schwab has lowered the expenses on some of it's index funds.

But again, my first move would be to get the legal advice.
