A Roth 401k is NOT a Roth IRA … A Practical Example

Roth IRA

Let’s consider that you are contributing to your companies Roth 401k and you do so for a number of years. Eventually, you decide to retire at age 62.

You decide to open a Roth IRA and facilitate a rollover from your Roth 401k.

You now want to take funds out of your Roth IRA (after all you have attained age 59 ½) and pay off your house.

Buyer beware. Remember the Roth IRA also carries a 5-year requirement. You must attain age 59 ½ AND have the Roth IRA open for 5 years to avoid a penalty on the gains.

You can always withdraw your contributions penalty-free but have to meet the rule above to get out earnings penalty-free!
