I am 43-years old, and I plan to stop getting a paycheck so I can spend more time at volunteer work.

Is there any way to drain my Variable Annuity without paying the 10% "early withdrawal penalty"? (I think this may be a tax issue, but I'm not sure). This Variable Annuity could provide a couple year's worth of income if I don't have to pay the 10% penalty.
I have had this Variable Annuity for 10 years.

I will eventually have the same question with my IRA's.

PS: I also posted this question on another board because I didn't know where the best place to post would be.
