L1: 72t income used for a loan
Has anyone used the income from a 72t to aquire a loan? If so, how was it documented and/or presented to underwriters?

L2: 72t income used for a loan
No first hand knowledge, but I don’t see any reason for a lender to care whether there is a 72t in place or not. The IRA itself cannot be used as security for a loan as that is a prohibited transaction. If the underwriter wanted to compare the effects of a 72t plan to an IRA outside such a plan, they might look at the distributions as a positive, but also consider that busting the plan if more funding is needed to be a negative since the IRA owner will not want to generate the retroactive penalty and interest.

Thanks, that explains things. I’ll have to do done more research on why that’s prohibited. Seems unfair to me.

L2: 72t income used for a loan
When I applied for a mortgage, the loan officer at the credit union coded the 72(t) income as pension۝, which is not really correct, but I was not going to question it, since the loan was approved.
