Greetings, wlcollins, and welcome. You asked:If I'm thinking about retiring when I'm 50, how can I get access to the 401K's and other retirment vehicles I have without paying those big penalties. Someone tried to tell me that if I "legitimaltly" retire before age 59.5, I can get at those accounts without additional tax or penatlites. Does anyone have any thoughts on this subject? I would like to do additional reading if possible.Yes, it's possible to get at the money when you're younger than age 59 1/2 by using what's called a Section 72(t) distribution. Once started, you can't stop it or change it until you reach age 59 1/2. It's all explained in this folder at http://boards.fool.com/Registered/Message.asp?id=1040013000805003&sort=postdate . Read that, and then c'mon back if you have further questions.Regards....Pixy
