    You need to contact the administator of the 401(k) plan. There should be contact information on the paper statements you receve in the mail, or you can call your employer's HR department and ask who to contact.

    If that doesn't work you can try the National Registry of Unclaimed Retirement Benefits (NRURB). They are responsible with keeping data on over 50,000 individual retirement accounts for individuals who have forgotten 401(k), profit sharing and other company sponsored plan balances that have been abandoned: https://www.unclaimedretirementbenefits.com/

    An additional suggestion is to go on-line and search for abandoned property in the state you lived in at the time. If you have not been receiving statements from the 401(k) plan administrator they may now consider you lost, and by law they would have turned your assets over to the state. Every state has a program to try to reunite people with their lost assets. Here is a free web site that lets you search your stateís database of abandoned assets: MissingMoney.com Unclaimed Property FREE SEARCH - Officially endorsed By The States, Provinces and Naupa . Itís a good idea to do a search on every state you ever lived in to see if there are abandoned assets in your name.
