Hi Fools,

Previously someone asked:

<<Is there a time limit on 401 K rollovers once you leave your current place of employment? >>

TMFMax replied:

<<No, none that I'm aware of. As long as you have over $5000 in a plan, the company has to allow you the option of leaving your money in the plan, and you should be able to roll it out of the plan at your leisure.>>

So my question is:

How about if the amount left in the plan is LESS than $5000? I know that the company/administrator is not forced to allow you to leave the money there, but does there exist any timeframe in which they can ask you/force you to move the money out?
Any clarifications would be appreciated.
