Hi all,

I've been reading publication 590 from the IRA to determine the amounts I can withdraw from my IRA between the ages of 59 1/2 and 70 1/2. All I can seem to find out from the publication are the exceptions. (For example if I'm under 59 1/2 I might be able to withdraw if I do so according to a plan and do so for at least 5 years. If I'm over 70 1/2 I must withdraw equal amounts based on my life expectance.)

What I need to know and can't seem find out is what about the middle years. Can I simply take out whatever I desire? (I relaize I would have to pay taxes on the taxable portion.)

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. TIA
