Often when people have part of their 401k money returned it is because of the "Highly Compensated Employee" 401K rules (google this). As I recall the limit is around $100K but that might vary by 401K plan.

If you make less than that you would not fall under these rules so you would not need to worry about the HCE rules triggering the return of part of your 401K money.
