If you don't know who it is through ask whoever is in charge of your payroll, they will send you in the right direction.

Go to the 401(k) holder's website, Enter a user name and create password. Otherwise, you have to wait for your tri-quartlery statement.

 
 

Answer 5/6 - Submitted 2/5/2011

You can access the company that holds your 401k online and create a user name and password. Then you can access your account whenever you want. You can talk to your company payroll or human resources department, and they should be able to help you. You should get a statement every 3 months from the 401k company telling you the balance and activity of your account. That quarterly statement should have a customer service number you can call to get your account balance.

 
 

Answer 6/6 - Submitted 2/5/2011

If your still working for the company the first thing you should do is walk down to your human resources department, and ask them about it. Your companies payroll department might help you otherwise. If you don't have a human resources department, don't have a payroll department, or don't work for the company any longer things become a bit more interesting. You are going to need to contact the company that holds the 401k accounts, though I find it unlikely you are going to know the name of the company if you don't know how much you have in your 401k. Calling your previous employer at that point is going to be a necessity.

I'm surprised that you don't receive statements several times a year detailing your 401k plan. It is in your best interest to be aware of your retirement accounts contents, and how that account is going to support your future.
