Do you have any strategies surrounding your Required Minimum Distributions (RMD)?

Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) references money in a tax-deferred vehicle like a 401k or the traditional IRAs. You need to think and plan for the Required Minimum Distributions as you will be required to start paying taxes when you get to age 72.

In this episode of the Secure Your Retirement podcast, we talk about the RMDs and strategies to keep in mind when planning for them. We explain how to calculate your RMDs using the IRS life expectancy formula and why you should start planning as early as possible.

In this episode, find out:

  • Understanding RMDs tax benefits and how they apply to your pretax type account like IRAs.
  • You can take your money out of the RMD on the year you turn 72 and before 12/31 of the same year.
  • The IRS life expectancy formula to calculate your annual RMD.
  • How you can defer your first-year income after you turn 72, and when it is advisable you do so.
  • How to withdraw your RMD income from different IRAs.
  • Avoid mistaking your RMD for the year to avoid the up to fifty percent penalty.
  • How you can convert your RMD into a Roth prior to age 72 and increase your growth and income.
  • Reinvest your money after taking it out of the IRA.
  • Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) – how to specifically not pay taxes while giving money to charity.
  • Have a plan as early as possible rather than delaying to the last minute.
