I would have to be in extreme dire circumstances to borrow money from my 401K. I just overall think of retirement savings as untouchable. I think if people are having cash flow problems, it's better to suspend contributions to a 401K and see if they can get caught up on their monthly cashflow, instead of actually withdrawing funds from a 401K.
