Customer:

I have a cd/IRA. I just moved it from one company to a bank. I recently had some unexpected expenses pop up and was curious if I could take from that rather than taking a bank loan?

Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome again. Thank you for your follow up question. Perhaps I lost you on chat so could not see your reply. Anyways, I can read it now.

Kindly note that CDs and IRA would be treated differently when you withdraw it early before its due time. When you are withdrawing from a CD, yes, you can certainly do it. You might be charged a very nominal fee for early withdraway. This varies from bank to bank. There will be no other consequences of a withdrawal from a CD.

Coming to IRA. This would be little different. If you are under 59 1/2 and withdraw from IRA early, you would be subjected to 10% of additional penalty over and above the income tax as per your applicable bracket.

So, I would suggest taking money out of CD first and only then touch your IRS. You have the follwing link as an excellent reference pertaining to IRS rules on early withdrawal.
