I used to live in US and had a 401k account. I don't live in US anymore and have moved to another country. Two questions:
- can I withdraw partial money from the 401k account
- are there any ways to reduce taxes if I withdraw non taxable amount for the year as I have no income for 23 in US but have earned in my country
I have about 51k saved in that account but in a need for some money (about 30k).

I had read about this sometime back. Trick is to only withdraw so that your annual income does not exceed 10% tax bracket, and you will pay additional 10% penalty for early withdrawal. ($11K for single filing or $22K for joint filing). If you withdraw 30K, you are looking at 12% income + 10% penalty tax)

Also check this out if any of the exemption situation apply for you - https://www.nerdwallet.com/article/investing/early-withdrawals-401ks

Here is one more advise -

If you aren’t planning to move back to US, check if your current country of residence has treaty with US to transfer your social security benefit.. and your current country of residence has treaty with India or your birth country so when you move you can move your social security

Hi! I was trying to figure out the right bowl for this question and I think this is the right one but if not lmk.

Now that I have a pretty nice salary, I want to purchase his house in the event that he passes. Does anyone have any tips on how to go about this? Would I need to buy it back from the bank & would it be the current value he owes? Can I start the process now?

With social security potentially running out, why couldn’t it be an option for the govt to put $5k for every baby that is born in a year into an account Invested in a govt share class S&P 500 fund. Historical average is 10%+, which would provide roughly $2.7 million for a baby born today. Eventually, this would eliminate the need for soc sec tax, and would only cost $18 Billion a year instead of several trillion a year being deposited into the trust.
