Greetings All,

About 3 1/2 years ago I lost my job at a utility company. I left a 401K there until last spring when I initiated a direct transfer into a Self-Directed Trad. IRA. I have since continued to get statements from this 401K that I still have eleven dollars and change in there. I have now been rehired by this company and would like to get a 401 K up and running again.

My questions are:

Is this 401K still active being there is a few bucks in it? Can I get back into this very same account and start contributions again? Do I have to do anything with the money already tranferred into the self-directed account? or can that be left alone?

Thanks for the Help.
