Badger is right, there are no restrictions on what you
take out before 70 1/2 trigger date; but remember any
withdrawals are taxable at ordinary income rates in the year of withdrawal! If you can, you may wish to spread the withdrawals over several years to minimise the tax impact. Remember however, the whole concept of the IRA
is to leave assets to accumulate tax-free for as long
as possible. Plan foolishly, spend wisely! - - Matthew
