IIRC, repayment of student loans is not "education expenses" for purposes of allowed use of IRA funds.

Ahh, I see. Perhaps I was getting ahead of myself. I assumed that student loan repayment qualified as education expenses. I haven't pored over the IRS pubs exhaustively but so far though I haven't found an explicit definition of education expenses. Thanks for pointing this out Jafo. Did you get your information online?
