A 401K account is supposed to provide for you during your golden years after retirement. The idea is that you will stay with the same company for the duration of your life. Or that you will continue to at least transfer your 401K as you transfer jobs so that your account never leaves your side and you can keep adding to it over the years. If you do so you will contribute into that same account year after year and it will continue to build until such time as you decide you would finally like to retire. What happens when you change jobs and you either just don’t or actually forget to transfer your 401K account? Well, let’s just say it doesn’t just go away.

Your 401K account is designed to keep you solvent in your retirement years for those days when you can no longer work so hard. By adding to your 401K when you’re young, virile and working, you can be sure that you’ll have a hefty sum left over when the time comes to cash those chips in. In some cases, your employer will even add to your 401K account, providing you with an even bigger nest egg for when you reach retirement age. However, with job turnover rates so high, we are seeing an increase in lost funds originated from these very accounts. If you changed jobs and you fear you may have lost funds from your 401K account, it’s time to do something about it.
