Withdrawing from your Retirement Portfolio

You can either make a partial withdrawal from your Retirement portfolio (IRA), or you can close it completely. 

Important Note: The minimum age to withdraw money from an IRA is 59 ½ years old. If you withdraw funds from your Retire Portfolio before age 59 ½, you may be subject to tax penalties from the IRS.
