Greetings, ScurvyDog, and welcome.<<I have a 401k account that was supposed to become apermanent account (company is forced to maintain account by federal law) at $3500. A while back in the WSJ they were saying this would go up to$5000. Is this true for accounts that pre-date the new law or will these accounts under the new min become un-permanent.Also, does anyone no when this is supposed to happen. Anydetails would be appreciated.>>The Taxpayer Rekief Act recently signed into law raises that limit to $5,000 effective with plan years beginning after enactment. In most cases, that means in 1998 retirement plans may force a distribution to terminated partcipants if theiraccumulated benefit under the plan is $5K or less. Those forced to take a distribution may transfer those amounts to an IRA to delay taxation until retirement. The law is silent on "grandfathering," so my educated guess is if your balance is under $5K when your old plan's new plan year starts (probably after 1/1/98), then you will receive a forced distribution.Regards........Pixy
