Why it may be 55, not 59½

<strong>What if you could access your ESOP and 401(k) before age 59</strong><strong>&#189; and not pay the 10% penalty?</strong>

What if you could access your ESOP and 401(k) before age 59½ and not pay the 10% penalty?

One of the things we hear most often is "I'd like to retire but I need to keep working till I'm 59½, don't I?"

This is usually because of the fear of the 10% tax penalty associated with their retirement distributions prior to 59½, or the belief that they simply can't access the proceeds.

While their concerns are valid -- and for most people it probably makes more sense to wait -- there are others who have positioned themselves to seriously consider retiring before age 59½.

The good news is we're here to help you determine which option is right for you!

If you have reached age 55 and are still employed with Publix, your options may be better than you think.
