I opened a Roth IRA about 4 years ago and am thinking of rolling over a few of my traditional IRA's into it but have a question regarding when I can withdraw some of those funds. I understand the 5 year waiting period but is that from the time of inception or when it was rolled into the account? Simply put if I roll over an account today can I withdraw next year or do I have to wait 5 years?
