When Is It OK To Withdraw Money Early from Your 401K?

In general, it is not advisable to withdraw money early from your 401K.

You can leave your 401K right where it is and benefit from it in retirement, wherever you are living in the world. However, in some cases, especially financial hardship or early retirement, an early withdrawal (or distribution) from your 401K may serve as a viable strategy.
