Before taking money out of your 401(k), take all tax implications and fees into consideration. You are allowed to withdraw funds before you reach 59.5 years of age, but there are fees that come along with doing that.

Esther, you can certainly do that. However, I would highly suggest that you understand the tax implications of taking assets out of a deferred taxation vehicle, like a 401K. Also, be aware that if you are younger than 59 1/2 years old there is also a penalty involved. Please speak with your CPA/Accountant about the tax ramifications to you in doing such a thing.
As advisors we try to find other solutions than taking retirement assets out of your 401K. We do not know your personal situation on this forum. I think it would be in your interest to speak face to face with a planner in your area before making this decision. Good luck.
