Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)


The IRS requires that you withdraw at least a minimum amount - known as a Required Minimum Distribution - from some types of retirement accounts annually, starting the year you turn age 73. Determining how much you are required to withdraw is an important issue in retirement planning. Use this calculator to determine your Required Minimum Distributions. Please note that this calculator does not apply to beneficiaries who assume secondary ownership of employer-sponsored plans.
