Yes, after I posted my message I finnaly got some information from the plan administrator. In the papers it said that I could get the money in my name and I would have 60 days to roll it over. But, they would still hold the 20% and I would then have to come up with the 20% on my own to put into a new IRA. Then when taxes are done I would get the 20% back from the IRS.

After thinking about it I am just going to roll it over right in to an IRA and not even touch the money myself

Thank you to all that have answered. It's great to know there are people out there that are willing to help others.
