Another laid off case here. Anyone moving out of US considered keeping the 401K as is instead of withdrawing? Any pros / cons to keep in mind ? Pro I see is no penalty and the fact that it'll continue to grow till I turn 65. Con is that it's a decent size amount in my case and I might need some if that cash if I don't get a job soon 🙄

Yo can withdraw without penalty under the provisions of the CARES Act if you were affected by COVID 19.

I am sorry to hear this, have you tried getting a job perhaps at lower level just to maintain status? I am sure you are aware that amazon is hiring like crazy, and so is Facebook.

EY2: sorry to hear that. I am not sure about tax, but if there is an opportunity at FB then no harm in trying. Will certainly recommend going via referral

I would recommend not thinking of 401K as all or nothing. It’s easy to withdraw everything but think how much you really need. I would try to keep at least something maybe ~50%. Then as D1 said take some without penalties, I think you can do a significant $ amount. Good luck
