1.) Can an inherited IRA be transfered to a spouse's name at any time or only when the spouse reaches 59 1/2?
At any time. It then becomes the spouse's IRA, subject to rules based soley on the spouse's attributes, e.g., the premature distribution penalty applies under age 59 1/2.
2.) Can the spouse take distributions in addition to the MRD from an inherited IRA without penalty?
