I have a Roth IRA that I pay into after tax. I was told that I can pull out my contributions anytime without having to pay tax, is this correct?

Yes with some conditions.

Are you older than 59 1/2

  • If you are over 59½  you can withdraw as much as you want, as long as your Roth IRA has been open for at least 5 years.
  • If you are under 59½, you can withdraw up to the amount that you contributed to the Roth IRA with no penalties.
