Should I withdraw from my traditional IRA to pay off my credit card debt?
100% of people found this answer helpful


It’s very tempting to pay off the credit card debts when you know you have a stash in an IRA.  However, the amount of money you take out (I assume $65k to pay off credit card balances) will add into your regular income, which may accidentally bump you into the next higher tax bracket. For example, if you file as an individual and your income is usually below $38, with that $65k from the IRA, you suddenly look at the 22% tax bracket vs. 12% prior to the IRA withdrawals.

Worse, if you file Medicare at 65, the SSA will review your 2018 return when you’re 63.  Once income, or more precisely the AGI, is above $85k for single, you will be paying additional premiums for Medicare Part B and D.

Thus, look the pros and cons for each choice before making a withdrawal from the IRA.  Better yet, talk to a professional for ideas/confirmations. Best!
