    Financial Planning, 401(k)
Why is my 401k unavailable after my employment termination?
62% of people found this answer helpful

That doesn't sound right at all unless it is not a 401k plan, but is some other type of retirement plan such as a type of pension plan. Another possibility is that if the funds were all employer contributions and are not vested, then you basically forfeit the funds. If it is a plain ol' regular 401k to which you made contributions and are thus vested in those contributions, upon termination of employment you should be able to access those funds, change investments, rollover to an IRA, etc. The only other reason I can think of is if there is some kind of litigation going on related to the plan which has cause plan assets to be frozen. 

You should call them and ask why you are not able to access the funds and get a copy of the plan document which spells out the rules of the plan so you can confirm what you are being told. If there is no reason why to prevent you from requesting your funds, you might have to go to the Department of Labor, but that is a last step.
