As a general axiom, it is wise to look at your financial plan and, as best possible, exhaust your 401k/IRA assets first and your after-tax assets second; however, this is all secondary to making your assets provide the income stream you need.

IMHO, you should visit www.soapbox.com and view a variety of reports; particularly mine on "substantially equal periodic payments" which discusses how to make 401k/IRA withdrawals before the age of 59 1/2 without penalty.
