  • Yes, under special conditions which require that you take our comparable withdrawals until you are 59 1/2. You will need professional help with this as well as whether you should do so in the first place. You can find fee-only advisors in your area on www.napfa.org. Retiring at 55 requires substantial savings for most people, and starting to take withdrawals at 55 will severely limit the savings you can use each year of retirement.
