Have him open arollover IRA at a Bank or Brokerage and have the old 401K Administrator make the check out to the new IRA. If he received a check already from the 401K do not cash it. Deposit it into the new IRA.
After doing this then he has options on what to do with the money. The rollover IRA can be converted to a Roth Ira or moved into another 401K at another job. Keep that rollover IRA money separate from other money unti a final decision is made.
