Your employer normally give you this type of document on your way out of the door. You can either keep the papers or if you would like to make a withdraw from your 401K, just fill out the paper and send it to the address(usually stated on the paper).

A 401k is money in an account that has been contributed by you and established by your employer. When you leave that job, you can move the money to a new account which is called a 401k rollover.

The 401k is not taxed but the Roth 401k will be best in the long run as the money you get out wont be taxed then.

401K retirement plans are meant to accumulate money throughout the years by interest free deposits. You can withdraw money from your 401K fund if needed, however, their is usually a large penalty fee.

Many men and women have found out that they have the ability to borrow money from their 401k plan before they actually retire. Although 401k loans make it easy for you to obtain the money that you might need, it might be a good idea for you to remember that borrowing money from your 401k plan also means that you will have to pay back this money with additional interest. The terms of your 401k loan will be based on your individual 401k plan and your retirement plan provider. If you want to learn more about how your 401k loan will work, you will need to contact your 401k plan administrator. He or she will be able to help you more about the 401k loans that might be available to you.401k Loans Have LimitsThere are quite a few different 401k plans that do not allow members to take out a 401k loan. Even though the government does allow 401k loans to take place, retirement plan providers are not required to let everyone obtain a loan from their 401k plan.Most 401k plans have limits to how much you will be able to borrow. For example, many different 401k loans only let you borrow half of the funds that are in your 401k plan. However, if half of the money in your plan is more than $50,000, you will only be able to borrow no more than $50,000. In addition, if you have borrowed money from your plan before, the amount of money that you borrowed will be factored in to your 401k loan limit.Paying Back the 401k LoanMost 401k loans have very strict payback terms. While other loans are lenient about when you need to pay back the loan, most plans have a maximum payback period of five years. Although 401k loan plans require you to pay interest, this money does not become taxed. In addition, the money that you pay in interest will eventually come back to you. You will be able to get the money back once you retire and are able to draw from your 401k plan.

The benefits of a 401k retirement plan are that you pay pretax money to your account. You get special tax breaks for a 401k, and some employers will match what you put in 401k.

money was taken out for 401k years ago from my pay checks how can I fine it

Not until the 401K money is withdrawn. The question should read, "Are 401k contributions......"

User Avatar

What you do is deposit money into the 401k during your entire working career. Then, when you retire, the money is there for you to live on (provided that you don't withdraw any money). Social security and any pension you get is not enough to live on in this economy. With the 401k, you can have extra funds when you aren't working.

User Avatar

Yes, but not until your discharge. If you take money out of a 401K after you file and before discharge, the money is no longer exempt and could be taken by the Trustee. If you take it out after your discharge the money is yours.

User Avatar

Withdrawals from 401k accounts are added to your general income for that tax year.

a 401k plan is an life time money dealing plan you should have after you quit your job

When you work for an employer who offers a 401k, it often makes sense to contribute as much as you can toward your retirement. By putting money into a 401k, you may also qualify for matching contributions from your employer. If you change jobs or get fired, you will need to address the money that is in your 401k at that point. You don't want to simply leave the money behind, as you would lose out on all of the savings that you set aside.401k RolloverWhen you leave your job, one of the options that you have is to engage in a 401k rollover. This is a process that involves transferring money from your existing 401k over to a new retirement account. For example, you could transfer the money from your 401k to a new 401k at a new job. You could also transfer the money from your 401k to an IRA or a Roth IRA. If you transfer the money to another 401k or a traditional IRA, the money will retain its favorable tax status. If you transfer the money to a Roth IRA, taxes must be paid on the money because it uses a different tax status.How it WorksWhen you are interested in engaging in a 401k rollover, the process is generally quite simple. You start the process by opening a new retirement account such as a 401k or an IRA. Then you notify your new account provider that you are going to be rollover funds from an old account. You then go back to your old provider and request a rollover. You will then have to fill out a form for your old account provider with information about your new account. At that point, your old provider will send the money from your old account to your new retirement account.ConsiderationsIf you are considering simply taking the money out of your 401k after you quit your job, you could use up a lot of your retirement funds. When you take this approach, you have to pay a penalty and pay taxes on the money, which will really eat into your retirement funds.

If I am understanding it correctly a 401k is basically for when you retire you have enough money to sustain you following finances, until your death. A retirement plan if you will.

User Avatar

That depends. If you are not a good saver and traditionally spend your money quickly, a 401K is a good investment to make sure you have money when you retire.

User Avatar

No 401K money cannot be seized for virtually anything. If by garnishment you mean your collecting from the 401k - there are many ways that income can be seized, just not while it's in the 401k.

if i am getting unemployment benefits in florida and take money from my 401k does that disqualify me from unemployment benefits

User Avatar

The only accounts that can be rolled into a 401k plan are other old 401k plans. You can not co-mingle the accounts. Once you rollover a 401k to an IRA or Annuity, you forfeit the right to put the money back into another 401k plan. However, there is really no benefit to putting the money back into a 401k plan in the first place. The money you roll in isn't matched, and your investment choices are typically somewhat limited with an employer plan.

Sorry but I am new at this. I have a friend with a 401K with the failed company Lehman Brothers. She fears she may have lost all of her 401K money. Does SIPC cover the bankrupcy?

A 401k plan is a retirement plan. Unlike a savings account you can withdraw money instantly but for a retirement plan you cannot touch that money till you reach the recommended retirement age.

User Avatar

A good tax consequence of a 401k retirement plan is that you can literally save money as the funds that are ususally tax-free. If you withdraw from your 401k plan, there is usually a large penalty.
