What happens to my plan account if I leave my job before I retire? Collapsed Expanded

If you’re about to change jobs, you have different options available to you to manage your retirement plan.

Anything you contribute — including rollover contributions and any earnings on that money — is always 100% vested. Your employer’s contributions may be subject to a vesting schedule, check with your employer for the specific vesting schedule for your plan. 

When to take distributions from your employer-sponsored retirement savings plan is up to you, but required minimum distributions (RMDs) must be taken each year beginning with the year you turn age 70 ½. Educate yourself before you make one of the most important financial decisions of your life.
