Can I withdraw from my IRA without a penalty?
100% of people found this answer helpful

I'm sorry you're in such a tight spot.

You have two options for a penalty free withdrawal from your IRA:

1- take equal payments for the next 5 years in an amount approved by the IRS. You can use a 72t calculator for this.

2- If you are disabled, then you can take money without a penalty you just need to prove at the end of the year on taxes that you are disabled.


On the 401(k), the same exemptions also apply but with two more exceptions:

3: if you have a QDRO assigning you money

4: if you separated from the employer at or after age 55 (50 for law enforcement). 


So it looks like using the QDRO to get money from the 401(k) is your best and fastest option at this point for a penalty free withdrawal. However, given the low income- there would be virtually no taxes on a modest amount from the IRA. So if necessary, pay the 10% penalty and take money from there too. 

It's not easy reading but here is the official IRS worksheet on it-


I hope that helps you. God bless you in your difficulty.
