I had a conversation this weekend with a relative and she stated the following: "Once you begin withdrawing money from a traditional IRA after you turn 59 1/2, you must withdraw 100% of the assets within 10 years". A source for this was not substantiated and IRS Publication makes no mention of such a requirement. Does the requirement have any basis in fact or is it a misunderstanding of some sort?

Thanks,
MrDP
