The required min­i­mum dis­tri­b­u­tion table (rmd table) for those who reach age 70 and the rmd table for ben­e­fi­cia­ries are print­ed below. If you want to down­load this RMD table for an Excel spread­sheet, just high­light and copy the table and then in your spread­sheet select “paste spe­cial” and uni­code text.

This site is a a lit­tle tech­ni­cal and was cre­at­ed as a resource for finan­cial advi­sors and finan­cial plan­ners. Con­sumers may want to vis­it our con­sumer site on IRA dis­tri­b­u­tions. Finan­cial advi­sors will find some of the more tech­ni­cal issues here such as exact­ly how rule 72t is imple­ment­ed, how to take dis­tri­b­u­tions from just one IRA account if the client has sev­er­al and what hap­pens if your client miss­es a dis­tri­b­u­tion.

Finan­cial advi­sors and finan­cial plan­ners may also want to send their clients and prospects an IRA newslet­ter that focus­es on IRA dis­tri­b­u­tion and retire­ment account man­age­ment issues.

This required minimum distribution table below is used by people who own IRAs.

Note that the RMD table starts a age 70 since there are no required min­i­mum dis­tri­b­u­tions pri­or to that age.
