Does anyone have the scoop on any $$ limitation on transfers of from a 401(k) from a former employer to an IRA, then to a Roth IRA? I'm retired and want to move my 401(k) money from the prior er plan to a Roth Ira, but I'm advised that I need to move it to an IRA first, then to the Roth. Is there a $2k (or other$) limitation per year on such transfers ??? If so, any short cuts(legal ones that is)??
