Terry Says:  OK, the first thing you need to do is a rollover.  The second thing you need to do is create a financial plan for both investing and withdrawals.  I would suggest contacting T. Rowe Price at, because they have a terrific service to help you answer both those questions. (Or you can roll to Fidelity and Vanguard, which have similar services.)

BUT,  do you really want to/have to retire at age 62?  Can you live on savings and wait about 4 years to take Social Security? I recommend waiting until full retirement age at 66+ before taking Social Security.  It’s very costly to start early, and penalizes any other earnings you might have.  That’s something you can discuss with the planners at T. Rowe Price — but do it BEFORE you actually retire!
