Thanks, ***** ***** your question. You are correct - those are your two options. Since the money was tax deferred in the US, the US is going to want tax on it one way or another - either when you are 59.5 and start taking withdrawals or if you withdraw now. There's no way to get the funds to another country and retain the tax deferred status in the US. I wish there were other options.
Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate positive.
