How it Works
You may withdraw up to 100% of the value of your account if:
- you are retired from MIT or your employment at MIT has otherwise terminated, regardless of your age (subject to any applicable penalties)
- you are working at MIT half-time or less and you are age 59½ or older
You will pay federal and state income taxes on your pre-tax contributions and accumulated investment earnings when you receive payments or withdraw money from your 401(k) account.
You will pay no additional taxes on either your Roth post-tax contributions or accumulated investment earnings as long as your withdrawal is after age 59½ and at least 5 years after your first Roth contribution was made.
