My mother-in-law recently received a letter from her former employer stating that she would receive a lump sum payment of $x from this employer's pension. The x is not something you can retire on. In fact she's stated that she really can't retire...she plans on working as long as she can. Technically, she'll retire in 5 years.

I just starting looking into this for her. From what I've read so far, the idea of moving this lump sum to an IRA sounds like the best option. I was wondering what I advise other Fools might have. Any thoughts?
