Is 401K an asset?
Liquid assets are cash or investment holdings or any tangible property that can be instantly converted to cash without losing their value. Individual retirement accounts and 401(k)s are retirement savings accounts designed to hold your money until retirement and technically are not liquid assets, unless you have reached retirement age. The idea is to leave your money in the 401(k) or IRA until you retire, so liquidating these funds prior to retirement age will get you some cash but also some Internal Revenue Service penalties that reduce the value of your asset.

Yes, only if you are taking the loan from a 401(k) with your current employer, but the loan may only be used for the following specific actions: * Education expenses for self…, spouse or dependent child * Eviction prevention from principal residence * Medical expenses that may not be reimbursed * First-time purchase of a principal residence Most 401(k) plans allow the owner to take a loan out (despite being a legal feature of the plan, the cost to administrate loans is usually too high for some businesses and they choose NOT to allow the feature) for specific reasons. There are limitations on the minimum and maximum amounts borrowable and payments must usually be made through payroll deductions. If you have a 401(k) with an employer that you no longer work for, they will not typically allow you to take a loan.
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 y…ou 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.

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.
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.
Just like the Simple IRA plan, Simple 401k's are plans designed for the small business owner with 100 or fewer employees. And, just as with the Simple IRA plan, there is a two…-year grace period for budding businesses, if the business goes over the 100-employee limit. Under Simple 401k's, employees can elect to defer some of their compensation. But unlike a standard 401k plan, you the employer must make either:1. A matching contribution up to 3% of each employee's pay, or 2. A non-elective contribution of 2% of each eligible employee's pay. No other contributions can be made. The employees are totally vested in all contributions, including those made by the employer to the employee's account. If you establish a 401k-Simple, you: Must have 100 or fewer employers.Cannot have any other retirement plans.Need to file a Form 5500 annually.

Can you get in trouble if you listed your 401k as an asset in bankruptcy and cashed out to pay remaining debt after the fact?
Answer Generally you cannot get in trouble for cashing in a 401(k) that was listed as an asset in your bankruptcy case to pay off non-discharged debts after the …case is over. If the 401(k) was listed as an asset, the court most likely ignored it since 401(k)'s are virtually always exempt (safe) in a bankruptcy proceeding, and once the case is over you are free to liquidate (i.e. cash in) your exempt assets and do whatever you want with the money, such as pay off non-discharged debts. If for some reason the court found the 401(k) to be an unexempt asset, such as if it was completely funded right before the bankruptcy was filed and was really just an attempt to protect cash, then if it is liquidated by the debtor without court approval this could be a problem. But, assuming no fraudulent activity on the part of the debtor, there should not be any problems.
