I'm working in the US under an H1B visa. I have some money saved to a 401k plan. I am 43 years old. Eventually, I will return to my country of origin and live there. At that point, can I leave my 401k account open until I reach the legal age for retirement (is it 55?), and come back to get the money? Or would it be safer to just withdraw any funds in spite of the taxes?
