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.
  • Funeral expenses.
  • Expenses necessary to repair damage of your principal residence.
