401K Early Withdrawal
Exceptions To The Rules
Generally speaking, there are exceptions
given for a 401k early withdrawal which are for "immediate and heavy financial need" such as:
- Medical care expenses that have been incurred by the employee or his dependents.
- Costs for the principal residence purchase, excluding mortgage payments. (However your specific 401k may have special rules on this. If you want to purchase a home with your 401k, you can look at rolling over the funds into an IRA. The IRS says that an IRA may possibly allow home purchase assistance. Publication 590.)
- Tuition and educational fees, including room and board expenses for 12 months of postsecondary education for you or your dependents.
- Funds necessary to prevent eviction of your principal residence.
- Expenses necessary to repair damage of your principal residence.
