It's common knowledge that you must start IRA distributions when 70 and use either of 2 methods to deminish the account-- but-- If you start to withdraw assets shortly after reaching 59 1/2, is there any time frame that the account must be depleted by? I have never read anything about this method although it must be the most commonly used. Heck, I need my money then, not at 70. Thanks in advance, Jim
