When I converted some of a 401K to a traditional IRA, I had both pre and after tax money in the 401K. Therefore I had to receive a check for a percentage of 401K funds withdrawn that was after tax and could not convert this amount into a traditional IRA. Is this a requirement of the government or a rule of the 401K administrator?
