Kyle asks:

<<So, if I am understanding correctly, my wife at the beginning of the tax year for 2003, can use my Roth withdrawl to purchase a house, right?>>

Yes, that's correct.

<< Or do I even have to wait for the 5 year period to take out my $9,500 contributions out penalty and tax free? Am I getting too bogged down in the details or can I "take the contributions, (not earnings)out at any time for any reason penalty free">>

Your regular annual contributions may be taken in any year for any purpose free of tax or penalty. Put in $500 today, and you can take it tomorrow. You only have to worry about taxes and penalties when it comes to Roth earnings and (if you made them) conversion contributions from traditional IRAs.

Regards..Pixy
