Bobby, the good news is that your money is safe and waiting for you at the plans' Custodian. Do you have any paperwork at all from the old 401k- a statement for example? Do you still know anyone else who worked there who might have more information about where the 401k was located? Once you find the custodian, just google them, call their "800" number and you will be on your way to being reunited with your 401k. When you do, you might want to ask about rolling the money into an IRA; you'll have more control over it.
Bobby, the plan used Nationwide Insurance as the carrier. I called them and found the correct department that used to take care of that plan. However, they are closed right now so I couldn't find the correct contact information, but did manage to find the right department that will have everything you need. You can call the Nationwide Core Team that handles pensions Monday-Thursday between 8:30-4 Eastern, and Fridays from 8-12pm. Call them at: 1-800-634-5222. Make sure you use the contract number: GAP-64-Z387 when you talk with them so they can look it up. Hope that helps a bit, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask us that's why we are all here.
Bobby, It would appear the business is no longer in operation. I went to the NJ Department of Revenue, Division of Revenue & Enterprises, and found a McNally Retail Services that has a Frank McNally as the registered agent. This business seems to have closed in 2009. I would contact this department in New Jersey and see if it leads anywhere. Do you happen to remember who the record keeper of the 401k plan was? Maybe Fidelity, John Hancock, Lincoln.....? If so contact them as well. One other place to call would be ERISA - 1-866-487-2365. I hope you find your money.
On how to receive funds - make sure the transfer is to an IRA as a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer to the investment custodian of your choice. The transfer will avoid a mandatory 20% withholding (which is also a taxable distribution) as opposed to the rollover. Make sure the check is made out to the investment provider, not to you directly.
