Required Minimum Distribution Request Form

Early in 2001, the Internal Revenue Service proposed a sweeping overhaul of the rules that regulate required minimum distributions (RMDs) from IRAs, 401(k)s and other retirement vehicles.

The newly proposed regulations could mean smaller mandatory withdrawals from your account, which could mean additional time to enjoy tax-deferred growth potential. Of course, don't forget that even simplified tax laws can still be complicated. The Retirement Center provides an understanding of IRA distribution options.

To begin taking an RMD or modify your existing distribution schedule, you'll need to fill out the RMD request form. The form is simple and self-explanatory.

For more information on the proposed regulations — including how they apply to your particular situation and any recent changes — contact your financial advisor, retirement plan administrator and/or tax professional.
