You need earned income to contribute to a ROTH or IRA and pension income isn't earned. Your pension check is income and taxable.....and you don't have anything like a DC account balance to rollover.....The only way I can see is if you are offered a buy out and then you would get today's lump sum value of your pension benefit and you would roll that over to an IRA.
