The government imposes penalties for making early withdrawals from retirement accounts. After a certain age, however, you’re required to take some money out every year. A mandatory 401k withdrawal is called a required minimum distribution.
The IRS allows penalty-free withdrawals from retirement accounts after age 59 ½ and requires withdrawals after age 72 (these are called Required Minimum Distributions, or RMDs). There are some exceptions to these rules for 401ks and other qualified plans. Try to think of your retirement savings accounts like a pension.
This allows you to avoid the tax withholding and early withdrawal penalty on the money you leave in the 401k or roll to an IRA. It also keeps that part of your savings growing tax-deferred, meaning you pay no taxes until distributing the money during retirement.
If you’re building your retirement saving, 401(k) plans are a great option. These employer-sponsored plans allow you to contribute up to $19,500 in pre-tax money in 2020 and 2021. Some employers will also match some of your contributions, which means “free money” for you.
