Dear Sir or Madam,

Your 401(k) has plan documents, which state that certain things that are allowed or not allowed. I doubt that they are entitled to keep your money. There may be a vesting schedule for company contributions. Perhaps they think that you are taking out a loan. Where are the assets held? Perhaps you should be dealing with the plan sponsor and not the employer.
