Also, just because the cash for the year is taken all at once, that doesn't mean it sits idle until it's used. It goes into interest paying vehicles until needed for expenses. These include interest paying checking accounts and short-term CDs. Thus, it continues to earn money while out of the IRA and until it's actually used.Regards..Pixy
