Answer: Unathi, Typically, if you have made your Liberty RA account paid up, Liberty will already have deducted any termination charges. Understand, however that you can only withdraw your investment (actually retire from the fund) if you are over the age of 55.
Regarding this, how does Liberty Mutual Pension Plan Work?
Through the pension plan, Liberty Mutual provides you with a monthly pay credit equal to 5% of your monthly eligible compensation, plus monthly interest credits. You can also participate in our 401(k) plan, which offers a guaranteed company match of $0.50 for each dollar you contribute, up to 8% of your eligible pay.
In respect to this, what happens when you cancel a retirement annuity?
If you cancel the policy before maturity date (normally in the year you turn 55), the policy will be made “paid-up”. You may incur an early termination charge (an accelerated recovery of upfront fees), although the closer you are to maturity date, the lower this should be. Your money will stay invested as before.
Can you take all your money out of an annuity?
Many insurance companies allow annuity owners to withdraw up to 10 percent of their account value without paying a surrender charge. However, if you withdraw more than your contract allows, you may still have to pay a penalty — even after the surrender period has ended.
So, at the very least, you should avoid withdrawing funds from a 401k. If all you want to do is close your 401k account, that’s easy. Simply go to your human resources department and make a request to stop paycheck contributions. There is no penalty for doing so.

Answer: Zolani, In theory it does not prescribe; however the money will be transferred to an unclaimed benefits fund in due course, and the fund rules may provide that the amount is written back after a set period (although National Treasury wants to prohibit this). However, even then, you can still claim your money.
