Question regarding an employers contrib (matching or otherwise) to your 401k...

I have heard that after some criteria(company service time ?) is met that the IRS has ruled that Company 401k plans must allow employees to roll over (to an IRA/Roth) some/all of that portion of their 401h which is locked up in the companies stock..This would be simular to a regular roll-over but this would be initiated _before_ you left the company...

Usually employer contribs are locked up in the companies stock and the IRS's contention is that having a significant amount of your retirement in an individual stock is more risky ... esp near retirement.

??? Does anyone have ANY information on this ???

i am assuming that the criteria would be after so many years with the company... say 10, 15 or 20...

I searched the IRS's web site for info on this and cannot find anything.
