I must take my first RMD this year. I want to convert the money that remains after taxes are paid on the distribution and convert to a Roth. The IRA is at broker "S" and my Roth is at broker "V". Do I need to have broker "S" make a direct transfer on can I just take their check and send it on to the Roth broker? I must be overlooking wherever this is spelled out.
Thanks,
Ted
