Our company recently changed its pension plan to TIAA CREF. I have a sizeable roll over and am not sure where or how to allocate it in the many funds that are available.

I am about 10-15 years from retirement. I have $100,000 + to roll over and can choose from the many options including CREF stock, Global Equities, Equity Index, Growth, Socail Choice, Bond Market, Inflation-linked Bond.

One thing we learned from Fool books is use the Index fund.

My current allocation of new funds will be 50% Index, 25% Stock, 25% Growth.

Initially the roll over will be placed in the money market so I can move it into other options easily.

Should I move the entire amount into different options at one time, or move the entire amount over a period of months in equal installments?

I sure would be interested in comments from other Fools. We are brand new at being Fools and are now taking stock in our entire retirement plan and making major changes to act more like Fools.
