Interesting angle, I'll have to check that out.

I would make sure that 100% is vested before you make the move. I got burned with that.

In any event, I need to wait until I get my final paycheck on 2/29 since it will be going 100% into the 401k before I initiate the transfer.
I would talk with the 401k administrator about the transfer options and pick up the necessary forms they may have. I did that a year later and then I had to email back and forth.
