Edward Jones TAX-WISE WAYS TO TAP RETIREMENT CASH Your retirement accounts are pretty well tied up, but you need money NOW! What's the best way to access those funds, ideally without triggering income tax and penalties? If you're still working, and the plan allows it, you can bon'ow up to half the balance from your 401(k). Interest rates are usually lower than elsewhere, and the loan payments and interest go back into your account. But you must pay the loan back on time, or it will be treated as an early distribution with taxes and penalty. If you lose your job or retire at 55, you can tap a 401(k) plan penalty-free (paying taxes), but you lose that early-out option if you roll it over to an IRA. Or avoid a penalty by using IRA funds for college or certain other special expenses. Or take "substantially equal periodic payments" for five years or until you are 59-1/2. A Roth IRA is easiest to tap tax- and penalty-free - but don't. Let those tax-free funds grow as long as possible. Brought to you as a public service by the tax experts at: 307 W.
