Early Distribution from Retirement Plans
It may be tempting to take a distribution from your IRA or 401k, but if you are under age 59 1/2 there may be some serious tax consequences to doing so.  Early distributions are usually subject to a 10% tax penalty.  There are some exceptions available though, for such things as the purchase of your first home, or certain medical or educational expenses.  Check out this link for more available details:  https://www.irs.gov/Retirement-Plans/Plan-Participant,-Employee/Retirement-Topics-Tax-on-Early-Distributions
 
 
Name Change due to Recent Marriage or Divorce
