(redirected from Required Minimum Distributions)

Required minimum distribution (RMD)

The minimum amount that the IRS requires must be withdrawn each year from all tax-advantaged retirement plans starting in the calendar year following the year in which the plan holder reaches age 70-1/2. Roth IRAs are exempt from this rule.

Required Minimum Distribution

The amount that an IRA must begin to distribute to an annuitant by the age of 70.5 or the date of retirement, whichever comes later. The required minimum distribution may or may not be taxable, depending on the type of IRA. The amount of the minimum required distribution is determined by the value of the IRA, the length of time the annuitant has contributed, and the amount of contributions.
