What are “hardship distributions”?

The IRS defines hardship distributions from a retirement plan as when a participant has an immediate and heavy financial need to access his retirement plan account in order to satisfy that need. The IRS may limit how much of your account may be accessible. For further information, please talk to your plan administrator or tax professional.
