This answer was rated:

I have some money (old 401K under transfer to IRA) in a money market fund. Could there be forced liquidation if debt limit deal does not get done. Bill Gross said the other day on CNBC that he is buying what Fidelity is selling. I did not understand that. My money market holdings are with XXXXX XXXXXcock and Janus. Thanks.

Rakhi Vasavada :

Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you.

Kindly remain online for a while as I prepare you reply.

Customer:

hi, thanks for responding.

Rakhi Vasavada :

Normally, forced liquidation does not happen. IF at all it happens, your employer would substitute that with another plan.

Rakhi Vasavada :

Forced liquidation happens only after warnings have been issued by the broker regarding the under-margin situation of an account. With the retirement plans, forced liquidations would certainly never happen.If at all, yours would get substituted with another retirement plan.

Customer:

Thanks. In 2008 some of the mm funds did go below their NAV of $1. I was wondering what Bill was referring to?

Rakhi Vasavada :

I see nothing to worry about at this point.

Customer:

Thanks. Thats it for now I'll rate your answer. Bye
