I am 36 and hope to retire sometime in my early 50s. I have been maxing out my 401(k) and Roth, but hardly have anything in taxable accounts.

I understand that the minimum age for penalty-free-withdrawls from these accounts is 59 1/2. Or is there any dispensation for early retirees? Do I need to start focusing more on my taxable account to make it from 53 to 59?
