Bottom line was it was a disaster from the standpoint of the Wise management, but having the funds in the IRA gives one much more flexibility when it comes to distributions, which may be taken starting at age 55 without penalty.>>

If indeed you may take penalty-free distributions at age 55, I think you moved those monies to a 403b(7) account instead of an IRA. If not and you do have an IRA, then penalty-free distributions can't start until you reach age 59 1/2 unless you take "substantially equal periodic payments" prior to that age.
