For those who are willing to pay the penalty (early withdrawal)

You might not be allowed to. I checked on mine and I'm not allowed to withdraw my money (even if I'm willing to pay a penalty) unless there were some extenuating circumstances:

1) In serious financial need
2) Are using the money as a down-payment on a house ("Let's prop up that housing market!"
3) You get laid off
