3 Key Points:


  1. There are a couple of variables that decide how much tax you will be able to withdraw and how much money you can leave in your 401(k).
  2. You have to remember that whatever amount you withdraw at a certain age from 401(k), you are going to pay taxes on it.
  3. As per rule of 55 if you are working and terminate or quit service from a company and at the same time you turn 55 or older then you could take the distribution from 401(k).
