Pension plan for employees
A 401k Plan generally is offered to employees by their employer. If you are self-employed, you may start a 401k or other retirement plan.
Not sure what you are asking, but generally you cannot simply convert your 401k to a Roth 401k, unless this is something your current company offers. If it is offered, then …you would have to pay taxes on the amount that you rolled into a roth 401k, but would never pay any other tax on the gains or distributions.
A 401(k) plan is a retirement account to which employee and employer contribute, on which taxes are deferred until withdrawal, and for which the employee selects the types of …investments.However,the 401(k) plan has many ups and downs and many regulations.

It normally takes your plan administrator 2-3 weeks to receive the notification on non-employment. They may require a specific wait period before a lump sum distribution is pe…rmitted. This information would be discussed in your Summary Plan Description.
Not a good idea, unless you have a very small amount left in it. The penalty (10%) and income taxes will have to be paid, and if it is a large amount, it will become an asset …of the bankruptcy estate and the trustee will take it. It is exempt in the 401(k), but not in your pocket or bank account. You could probably amend your petition documents to exempt the amount if you have exemptions available, but you should discuss it with your attorney or get a bankruptcy attorney in your area to review this.
In the United States, a 401(k) plan is the tax-qualified, defined-contribution pension accountdefined in subsection 401(k) of the Internal RevenueCode .  Under the p…lan, retirement savings contributions are provided (andsometimes proportionately matched) by an employer, deducted fromthe employee's paycheck before taxation (therefore tax-deferred untilwithdrawn after retirement or as otherwise permitted by applicablelaw), and limited to a maximum pre-tax annual contribution of$17,500 (as of 2014).   Other employer-provided defined-contribution plans include 403(b) plans, fornonprofit institutions, and 457(b) plans for governmentalemployers. These plans are all established under section 401(a) of theInternal Revenue Code. 401(a) plans may provide total annualaddition of $52,000 (as of 2014) per plan participant, includingboth employee and employer contributions.

Typically, you're able to withdrawal from a 401k if you're atleast Age 59 1/2 and older or if you're no longer employed with the Company that the 401k you were contributing to… belongs to. However, some companies offer in-service withdrawals. Those are typically withdrawals from monies that you contributed on an after-tax basis, withdrawals from monies that your employer contributed on your behalf into the plan, and hardship withdrawals. Hardship withdrawals typically require you to complete a Hardship Withdrawal Application and send it in with proof of your hardship need. The qualifying reasons for a harship are typically: Prevention of eviction/foreclosure, Unreimbursed medical expenses, Post Secondary Education, Funeral/Burial expenses, Repair to your primary residence that qualifies as a casualty deduction expense for tax purposes, or Purchase of a primary residence. Some companies may honor other reasons as being a Qualified Hardship Reason. The best way to know if you're able to take a withdrawal from your 401k would be to contact your Plan Administrator or Reference your Summary Plan Description.
Fidelty 401k is not the only one out there. Your local bank would be happy to set up a 401k for you, as well as the investment companies such as Charles Schwab and Scott Trade….
Once you turn 70Â½, you must begin withdrawals from your 401(k)unless you're still working. These required withdrawals aredesigned to ensure that you use the money in your a…ccount for thepurpose it was intended: to provide retirement income. You may notbe required to put money into a 401(k) plan. In fact, only a fewemployers have mandatory plans. But if you do contribute, you musteventually take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from yourplan if you haven't made arrangements for moving the accumulatedassets out of your account. Check your minimum requireddistribution using our calculator . The reason the government requires withdrawals is that thesetax-deferred savings plans were established to provide you withretirement income, not as a way for you to accumulate an estate toleave to your heirs-though if you die before you have withdrawnyour assets you can pass them on to a beneficiary or beneficiariesyou name. Of course, you're free to begin withdrawing sooner than the lawrequires-which is when you reach 70Â½-if you retire or leave yourjob. You can also take more than the required minimum each year ifyour plan offers a flexible withdrawal arrangement. But if you takeless for any reason, or if the required annual withdrawal isn'tmade before the end of the year, you face a 50 percent federalpenalty on the amount you should have taken but didn't.
