As I understand it (and I may be wrong), you don't need to wait five years to take out your contributions (only your returns). And I have read that this is a "glitch" in the laws regarding Roth IRA's--being able to convert a traditional IRA into a Roth as a contribution and then being able to take out the money right away--and also that the government is in the process of "fixing" this glitch, whatever that means. Hopefully I have not spewed forth incorrect info, if I am wrong then someone please straighten me out!
