Looking for some help here.
I am 51 years old and I am leaving my current employer after 25 years. My 401k has @ 200k and I need some Foolish advise. I am not going to another job (I've just had enough of the rat race), so a rollover is not an option at this time. In my plan, a large portion of the investments were made after taxes. That leads me to my 100 Questions.

1. Can I take that money out and use it if necessary without penalty?
2. Can all of the money be rolled into a Ira?
3. If I roll it all into an Ira and then need some of the post tax investment, will I have to pay a penalty on the withdrawal?
4. Is the Foolish 4 a viable option as I still have quite a way to go before true retirement? My wife and I have approzimately 100K in other retirement assets?

I am open to any Ideas

thanks to all
