Hi,

1. I understand that if you retire you can have access to 401K funds w/o penalty starting at age 55 (don't have to wait until age 59.5 to get penalty-free distributions due to retirement at 55). BUT, if you retire PIOR to 55 - say at age 54 -, can you start collecting at 55 or do you have to wait until 59.5?

2. I understand that you can take IRA distributions penalty free prior to 59.5 if you fall under the substantially identical disbursements rule. How early (what age) can this start at? Does it apply to Roth IRAs too?

Thank you very much for your help here!!

Joe
