Ask A CPA - Retirement Planning

Is A 457 Withdrawal Prior To Turning Age 59 1/2 Subject To The 10% Early Withdrawal Penalty ?

Regardless of your age, you are not subject to the 10% early withdrawal penalty on 457 plan contributions and earnings. However, the penalty may apply to non-457 plan assets that are rolled into your 457 plan and subsequently withdrawn prior to age 59½.
