which is if someone wants to retire before 59 1/2, when the Roth becomes fully distributable, one would have to bridge the gap between the age of retirement and age 59 1/2. So, a regular brokerage account will likely be one of the best vehicles to bridge the gap.

You could withdraw principle early from a Roth without the 10% penalty and without income taxes.

You could also look at a 72T if you retire prior to 59 1/2.
