Rollover or withdraw 401k money

Hello all, just a quick question for you guys.

I have $600 dollars in my old employers 401k plan. Yah, I know, small potatoes. Thats why I'm thinking about just taking the penalty and then depositing it in my ING Roth IRA.

I have read that I can't roll it directly to a Roth. I would have to set up a traditional IRA to use as the go-between. But, for $600 dollars I dont know that this would be worth it?

I'm 25. I didnt know if someone could give me a guesstimate at the penalty amount we are talking? At the old employer I made 27000 a year, at my current job I make 29000. If that matters.

I appreciate the help! I just dont wanna hassle with setting up a traditional IRA to save 20 bucks, ya know?

Why would you want to pay tax on money that already resides in a tax deferred account? Roll it to an IRA and keep it tax deferred.

I agree with blueshifty, keeping the money as tax deferred as possible will probably prove most beneficial especially considering it will already be taxed

Your new employer might even let you roll it into their 401k plan. You should explore that as an option as well.
