I you REALLY feel you MUST take 401K funds to pay down installment debt, you might want to consider taking a loan from your 401K instead of taking a lump sum distribution.

Rationale:
- No tax penalty
- Forced pay back /w interest to YOUR account

Every 401K plan will have its own limits on the fraction of the account that can be borrowed and the payback terms. You might want to consider this alternative...
