There are certain exceptions to the 10% early distribution penalty for taking a distribution from your IRA, but there are none specifically related to taking care of a family member.  

 

Take a look at the following TurboTax article to learn what the exceptions are for the early distribution penalty for an IRA and be sure that none apply to your situation.  Specifically, if you had to pay your own health insurance while you were unemployed, then you might qualify for an exception to the penalty.  

 

Are there exceptions to the early distribution penalty on an IRA?

 

These exceptions are for the penalty amount only, the distribution will still be subject to the income tax.
