Now, when you eventually cash-out your old 401(k) assets, the entire account balance minus the post-tax contributions is "rollable" into a Rollover IRA or potentially a new 401(k) plan at a new employer. The post-tax contributions themselves are not rollable and are returned to you in cash as a non-taxable transaction.

BADGER, does this mean that the interest earned on the post-tax contributions does not have to be distributed to me but rather it can be rolled over into the new tax deffered accounted??
