I am relatively new to this Board of the Fool...

I was err umm sold to a new company last year and in the process of consolidating my 401Ks.. I do mean plural. I have about 3 401Ks with various different employers that have just been sitting there accumulating intrest with no new contributions beening added. A rather unfoolish move. Correcting that now.

The question I have about this is I have portions of each 401K that is vested and unvested. I realize I wont get the unvest portion since I was not working that each of the other companies long enough to be vested.

Once I roll over the vested amout to my current 401K what happends to the remaining unvested portions in the other 401Ks? Does it stay in the account accuring intrest just in case I might someday stoop so low as to come back to work for that company? Will I get quarterly statements forever until I die reminding me how much cash I could have had had I stuck it out a few more years?

Does any Fool know. Thanks in advance.
