    Answered . I would need some specific information about your 401(k) before I could offer you a firm opinion. However, there are 401(k) plan that can be rolled into an IRA. If your employer continues to ignore your request, I suggest speaking to the outside plan administrator of the 401(k).

    Answered . I agree with my colleagues. From a practical standpoint, if your employer is not responding to your requests, then contact your 401(k) plan administrator and / or your IRA manager.

Those calls could yield a wealth of advice.
