One of the nice things about a Roth is that your contributions can be withdrawn after 5 years without taxes or penalties.

I reply:

Actually, contributions can be withdrawn at any time without taxes or penalties. After the account is at least five years old, earnings also can be withdrawn without taxes or penalties, provided that the account owner is at least 59.5 years old. --Bob
