Withdrawing and contributing to IRAs (same year)

Hi, I retired and have been using the 72(t) SEPP to withdraw a fixed amount from my IRAs. I decided I am going to go back to work for awhile, though.

Can I contibute to a new IRA this year despite taking money out of the previous IRAs (using the 72(t) SEPP without penalty?

I assume the 5 year (minimum withdrawal) rule would only apply to the two IRAs I have been taking money out of.

Yes, as long as you keep separate the SEPP IRA(s) from the IRA to which you contribute.

You can combine them after you finish the SEPP if you want.

I had a similar situation, but was contributing to a company's 401k while withdrawing from IRA. I was curious about your situation, so I googled it. According to this site, you can contribute to IRA A while withdrawing from IRA B.
