‘”The current economy has forced some workers to borrow from their 401(k) accounts in order to pay for critical living expenses, ultimately jeopardizing their future retirement,” said James MacDonald, president of workplace investing for Fidelity Investments.’”
It should be very very obvious that all future money will be in the hands of the globalist elites who will rob and plunder the worlds economies into their privately owned and ruled banks who will dump all of the nations accumilated wealth into their coffers. Gone will be all social security and 401Ks and all pensions as they will take everything that people own and steal it for their own use (like paying interest on loans that can never be repaid).
It is very strange indeed that the FDIC is looking toward private pension investors to puchase toxic debt that the US government was practically forced to purchase in the wake of the Great Recession. This is because there is approximately 2 trillion dollars that are unaccounted for that were used to bail out various financial institutions, but we see that the likes of Geithner and Paulson were not able or unwilling to tell people where the money was spent. This is no joke.
401(k) withdrawals spike
By Aaron Smith, CNNMoney.com staff writer
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Hardship withdrawals from 401(k) retirement saving plans rose to the highest level in 10 years during the second quarter, Fidelity Investments said on Friday, in the latest sign of a dismal economy.

Fidelity reported that, as of the second quarter, 2.2% of all 401(k) participants had made a hardship withdrawal at some point over the preceding 12 months. That’s up from 2% in the prior year, and was the highest level in 10 years.
Think it can’t happen to the US or anywhere else?
Argentina has already vowed to push through similar measures in the name of rescuing the wider financial system. Last month, the government of the South American country signed a bill to mandate the National Social Security Administration takeover of $30 billion worth of private pensions.
The move sent stock markets plummeting with critics accusing the government of stealing the pensions to get their hands on extra money at a time of economic crisis, as citizens protested across the country. Source: infowars
Failed Banks May Get Pension-Fund Backing as FDIC Seeks Cash
By Dakin Campbell
March 8 (Bloomberg) — The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is trying to encourage public retirement funds that control more than $2 trillion to buy all or part of failed lenders, taking a more direct role in propping up the banking system, said people briefed on the matter.
Direct investments may allow funds such as those in Oregon, New Jersey and California to cut fees for private-equity managers, and the agency to get better prices for distressed assets, the people said. They declined to be identified because talks with regulators are confidential.
Oregon’s retirement fund may contribute $100 million as regulators seek “the support of state pension funds to solve the crisis surrounding ongoing bank failures,” Jay Fewel, a senior investment officer at the Oregon State Treasury, said in a presentation at the fund’s Feb. 24 meeting. New Jersey’s fund may also participate, said Orin Kramer, chairman of New Jersey’s State Investment Council.
The FDIC shuttered 140 lenders last year and expects the tally may be higher in 2010. Regulators have avoided signing up private-equity firms as rescuers on concern that they might take too much risk. Pension funds, whose 100 largest members manage $2.4 trillion, could provide capital to acquire deposits and outstanding loans from collapsed banks, according to the people.
