Subject:  RMD before death? Date:  10/11/2013  2:46 PM

I'm hoping this will be the easiest question I have as I help FIL with the financial side of MIL's death. She probably only has a couple days left, but it might be longer.

My MIL's Trad IRA is set up to take out 1/4 of the RMD quarterly. The fourth quarter's will not be taken out until December. Is there any reason to take it out now or should it just stay in the IRA and pass into her trust? The trust is an A/B trust that was set up in the mid-1990s.

FIL doesn't need the money.

Sorry for being yet another clueless person who is sorting out a relative's death and trust issues.
