Know I cant roll these over into an IRA. But if I withdraw the after-tax contributions, (ie: actual after tax contributions plus their earnings ) are they completely free of tax? I am not yet 59 1/2, if this has any bareing on the situation.

The after-tax distribution is free of tax and penalty regardless of you age.
