...Really? Because I've had 6 different 401(k) plans where I have looked at the loan provisions, and not one of them had this restriction. So either I have lived an incredibly charmed life with respect to 401(k) plans, or 'many' is more like 'some' or 'a few' or maybe even 'rarely'.....

I think mine has this limitation. A quick google found this;


If you borrow money from your 401(k) plan, most plans have a provision that prohibits you from making additional contributions until the loan balance is repaid. Even if your plan doesn't have this provision,....

It would at least be with checking first. It really dosn't matter what most plans do, it matters what your plan does.
