The previous poster was talking about using ROTH IRA money for college. I was thinking about this possibility for myself. However, I did not see anywhere in the regulations that you are allowed to withdraw money for education from a ROTH IRA (of course, you can withdraw the principle, but not the interest). It does say that you can use traditional IRA money for education without incurring any penalty. Am I missing something buried even deeper in the regulations?
