Rights of employees who leave an employer with a qualified plan to withdraw their accumulated benefits. With a contributory plan, employees have immediate rights to their own contributions, plus earnings. If they leave the employer, the accumulated money belongs to them. But they are not entitled to employer contributions, unless vested, vesting depends on the terms of the plan, but maximum time limits are set by law. A vested employee who withdraws accumulated benefits upon separation may either pay tax on the amount contributed by the employer and spend it, or roll it over into an individual retirement account (IRA).
