Yes, it's possible to get at the money when you're younger than age 59 1/2 by using what's called a Section 72(t)
distribution. Once started, you can't stop it or change it until you reach age 59 1/2. It's all explained in this folder
at http://boards.fool.com/Registered/Message.asp?id=1040013000805003&sort=postdate . Read that, and then
c'mon back if you have further questions.

I have a further question.
I want to start a Roth IRA to provide income from age 50 until I can withdraw from my 401(k) at 59 1/2. Do the same Section 72 rules and the 10% penalty apply to IRAs? If so, what are the alternatives? Can the distribution be evenly divided over the 9 1/2 years from 50 to 59 1/2 or does it have to be life expectancy? Would a basic non-IRA savings account be better than a Roth for the 50's?

Thanks, Rich
