You can easily lose 50% of money when this happens.Better would be to open the IRA first, the ask your IRA trustee what you need to do. They'll generally point you to a form or two, after which they'll request the transfer _directly_ from the 401(k) to the IRA. That way you avoid the possibility of the penalties.And believe me, your trustee will be _very_ happy to help you with getting this exactly right.shess
