.... My husband is currently 51 and it's looking like a train wreck to me on money we put in a traditional IRA while they were deductible for us way back in our 20s. ...I took a look at the table that I found;http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p590.pdfPage 101said the life expectancy at age 70 was 27.4 years, at 80 it is about 18.7 years. (it also says that a 100 yeat old has a life expectancy of 6.3 years!)If having to withdraw 1/27 to 1/18 (about 4 to 6 percent) of your traditional IRA each year qualifies as a train wreck then I envy you.If there is that much money in the IRA you should look into retiring early if you haven't already and taking the “substantially equal distributions” to avoid the 10% penalty.
