Can I withdraw all of my Solo 401(k) savings as a lump sum?

I have a very good pension plan through my employer. If I start a Solo 401(k) account on the side, could I withdraw the money as a lump sum when I retire? I will be able to live off my pension plan, so this would be a secondary source of money in retirement. What are the advantages and disadvantages of withdrawing all of my Solo 401(k) savings as a lump sum?

Yes you could pull out your Solo 401k in a lump sum when you retire.  The question would be why would you want to to do this?  If you pull the money all at once it is safe to assume you will pay more taxes than if you pulled it out over time as needed.


To start a solo 401k you will  need selp employed income.  If this is you read this post:
