loan is only considered 'defaulted'. The defaulted loan amount plus accrued
interest must be paid off at some point. Until it is paid off, the loan is
still active and is considered part of the plan (in accord with IRS
regulations). When the loan is paid off, the defaulted amount will not be taxed
again upon withdrawal.
