My wife just recently left her job to have a baby. She has both a 401K plan and a Pension plan. Q: Can we roll over either plan (either in full or in part) to a 529 plan for our child's college? Thanks.

Again, all contributions to 529s must be in after tax cash. There is no way to directly roll a tax deductible plan like a 401k into a 529. You would have to pay taxes and the 10% penalty on the funds prior to funding the 529. In almost every case this is a bad idea.
