October 6, 2006, Newsletter Issue #17: Early Distribution Penalties and Your Traditional IRA

Tip of the Week

Unlike a Qualified Roth IRA that is tax and penalty free, a Traditional IRA is subject to a 10% early distribution penalty. If you are interested in rolling over your Traditional IRA to your Roth IRA, it's best to see the advice of a financial planner first. You should also check with the financial institution that holds your IRA to ensure your transaction is order and you aren't subject to any penalty fees.
