To make this simple lets' call one company A and the other B. I worked for company A for 10 years and participated in their 401K. Then company B bought them out and after 2 years is now allowing me to participate in their 401k. Unfortunately I was told by company B that I could not roll my 401k money from company A to company B's 401k plan and for some "legal" reson that was not explained I am not allowed to either contributed of roll over my 401k money from company A to an IRA.

There might be a simple answer to this but I don't know why I cannot at least roll my money in the 401k from company A to an IRA since I am no longer able to participate in it....

Thanks for any help....
