While you never have to make withdrawals from a Roth IRA, you must take annual RMDs from traditional, SEP and SIMPLE IRAs, pension and profit-sharing plans and 401(k), 403(b) and 457 retirement plans annually past a certain age. If you don’t, severe financial penalties may be enforced.
If you are still working as an employee at age 70½, you don’t have to take RMDs from a profit-sharing plan, a pension plan, or a 401(k), 403(b) or 457 plan. Your initial RMDs from these accounts will only be required after you retire. However, you must take RMDs from these types of accounts if you own 5% or more of a business sponsoring such a retirement plan.1
You must take RMDs from IRAs after you turn 70½ regardless of whether you are still working or not.
The annual deadline is December 31, right? Yes, with on…
