Can I use my 401k to help with the transition costs of a new home purchase?
82% of people found this answer helpful

Yes, you are able to take a limited amount of funds from your 401k to purchase a house if your plan allows it.

With the new plan, you can roll the whole amount or partial amount into a Roth IRA by doing a direct transfer. I suggest not rolling the transaction amount into a Roth IRA. When you roll your 401k portion to a Roth IRA, you will be liable for taxes because Roth IRA’s are after-tax contribution accounts. Then, when you cash out the Roth IR to pay the transaction costs for the house there could be additional costs involved.

If you only have a 401k, there are two possible ways to take this distribution. A 401k loan or a hardship withdrawal.

The best possible option is to take a loan from your 401(k). It’s a non-taxable event as long as you are still employed and you can pay yourself back plus interest. You are eligible to take a loan amount equal to the lesser of half your account value or $50,000. Before taking a loan, talk to the plan administrator or plan advisor to see what it will the amount you can take out and if you can afford the payments. The maximum loan term is 5 years. But, if you leave the company within the 5 years, the remaining loan amount will convert into a distribution and be a taxable event.

The worst possible option for funding your purchase is taking a distribution under the IRS’s hardship rules. Your company’s retirement plan would need to allow hardship distributions for this to be possible. The plan might require you to first take a loan before taking a hardship distribution. This distribution would be a taxable event. If you are under the age of 59 ½, there will be an additional 10% tax on the amount distributed.
