401k plans may have loan provisions. This means you can borrow up to 50% of the account balance with a 2021 tax year hard ceiling of $50,000 (or 50% of $100,000+). You are basically paying yourself interest on the loan.
401k plans can also buy life insurance, which is a neat way of deducting your life insurance premiums since the money going into the 401k plan may be pre-tax. There are all sorts of rules and limitations, but you should be aware of this option.
