  • The distribution is due to your death, disability, or a first-time home purchase.4
Eligibility You can contribute if you have earned compensation and are under the age of 70.5. You can contribute if you have earned compensation and your modified adjusted gross income falls within the limits set by the IRS.

Withdrawals2 Earnings and contributions are taxed as income when withdrawn. Required Minimum Distribution must begin after age 70.5

Contributions may be withdrawn tax- and penalty-free at any time. After the account has been open five years, earnings may be withdrawn tax- and penalty-free if:
