SIMPLE IRA assets are fully vested and may be withdrawn at any time, subject to taxes and penalties as explained below. Charles Schwab is responsible for making distributions to you upon your request, not your employer. You may contact Charles Schwab directly at 1-800-435-4000 or email amanda@FPLCapital.com to request a distribution. Please allow time for processing.
Federal Income Tax
Distributions from SIMPLE IRAs are taxed as ordinary income in the year in which you receive them.
Early Distribution Penalty
A 25% early withdrawal penalty applies to SIMPLE IRA distributions taken within 2 years of your initial participation in the plan, unless you are over the age of 59 1/2 or qualify for an exemption. If you are under the age of 59 1/2, have satisfied the 2 year requirement and receive a distribution that does not qualify for an exemption, you will be subject to a 10% early distribution penalty.
SIMPLE IRA distribution rules are complex and subject to change. For more information, please visit https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/simple-ira-plan-faqs-distributions.
