My retirement fund is 100% employer contributions to a money purchase plan. It might be a 401(a) plan, but I am not sure that is the correct technical term. Now that I think about it, the plan does allow for early retirement on my 55th birthday. I just wanted to be able to get the $ out of their plan and have complete control over my investment choices. Right now I can only invest in a limited number of mutual funds. Maybe I should leave it there until I turn 60 and then roll it over into my own IRA?

I'm sorry, I can't figure this out, even when I ignore the subject line, which has nothing to do with the post. Can you be a little clearer about your status? Most importantly, are you still working for the plan sponsor? Right behind is the fact that your options, both when and what, will depend in large part on the plan's rules. So, you're going to need to check on that regardless.
