Can I draw from 401k at 55?

As a general rule, you will incur a 10% penalty tax in addition to regular income taxes if you take a distribution from your 401k prior to age 59½. There is, however, an opportunity to withdraw penalty-free savings from your 401k at age 55.

When can you withdraw from a 401k without penalty?

Unfortunately, millions more take early withdrawals from these accounts due to hardship, loss of a job or other money woes. If you take a distribution from an IRA or a 401k before the age of 59 ½, you're assessed a 10% penalty tax in addition to any other taxes you owe. That adds up.

Can you collect Social Security benefits at age 55?

Can I Collect My Social Security Benefits At Age 55? Unless you are disabled, the earliest that you can potentially draw Social Security retirement benefits is at age 62. You could potentially file just for reduced Social Security benefits as early as age 62 and then file for Railroad retirement later, or vice versa.
