Just to add to AJ's response because you had asked about Medicare income limits in the previous thread, be aware that any money you convert from your 457 plan to a Roth IRA is considered taxable income, and so you want to watch that you don't go over the Medicare income threshold due to your conversions.

I am in the process of converting from a Traditional IRA to a Roth, and am planning on going close to the maximum Medicare income threshold so have been paying attention to this. Remember, too, that the MAGI for Medicare is your AGI from your 1040 plus any tax exempt interest that would not be included in your AGI on your 1040.

I have a spreadsheet that I'm using to calculate what we can convert, so if you plan to be close to the threshold, you may want to build something like that to help you.

Just one more thing for you to be considering.
