I asked a similar question yesterday and this is the response I got.

My wife is a US resident (Italian citizen) participating in her company's 401(k) plan. When/if we move to Italy will she still have access to her funds after the specified age 59 1/2 or does she forfeit that money not being an American citizen? Same question for IRA.

Your question boils down to taxes. I recommend you read this TMF article:
http://www.fool.com/FoolFAQ/FoolFAQ0041.htm

And then look up IRS Pub 519, U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens. You can download a copy from the IRS web site:
http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/prod/forms_pubs/pubs.html

Finally, you should post your question on TMF's Tax Strategies discussion board. Your question isn't hard. You just need professional advice.
