I am leaving government service soon (gasp!!) and am joining the private sector. I have about 10K in a Tax Sheltered Anniuity (fixed). I know that one Foolish thing to do is to directly roll it over to the Vanguard Index 500 Fund (In an IRA).

Does anyone know how much time I have to do this? I will have to roll the entire amount over (and can not take advantage of dollar cost averaging). With the market at such high levels, does it make sense for me to wait a while for a "correction" at the end of the year?

I realize that it is Folly to "time" the market, but with a one time rollover like this I would like to get as much bang for my buck as possible. This is long term (10 years+) money.

Thanks! James
