401k When Leaving Job Question?

Can anyone inform me about some smart options for this situation?

My wife is leaving her job with a major company and will be out of work for a few months. She has a 401k worth roughly 25,000 as of now.

What should we do with the 401k while she is out of work for three months before starting a new job??

Roll it over to an IRA or ROTH IRA. Just be aware that if you roll it to a ROTH you will be responsible for income taxes on the 25k. Googling "IRA rollover" should get you plenty of good information why/how to do this.
