I am working on an H1B visa. What happens to my 401K if I am terminated and have to leave the country to go back to my home country FOR GOOD.

Can I take the money I invested in my 401K with me?

If Yes, what % of taxes will be cut from that money in the 401K?

Will I forefit the money that my company invested in my 401K?

Any input is greatly appreciated.
