How do I avoid accidentally withdrawing interest from my account?

When money is taken out of your myRA, your contributions will automatically come out before your earnings (interest). This applies across all Roth IRAs you may own and helps minimize the potential for taxes and penalties. If you take out more than the amount of your contributions, then you’ll begin taking out interest (or earnings) which may be taxable. Therefore, you may want to know how much interest you’ve earned to date. You can view your interest to date by signing into your account.
