I am having a little trouble sorting through the various permutations of invested vs. inherited IRAs, the five-yr option and annuitization. Situation is the following - my brother and I are DBs for a $120K IRA invested with a bank in a CD. We would like to both put the money in a better investment opportunity and maximize the time for taking the distributions. My father died on his 76th birthday, had been taking distributions, and was not recalculating his life expectancy. I am the elder sibling & will be 36 this year.Previous posts have left me with these questions:If I take my father's IRA and move it to an account with "Dad's IRA, FBO Me", then I can use the funds in your account to make any investment allowable in an IRA. Can I also maximize the time over which I take the distributions in this case (i.e. Dad's remaining life expectancy + mine) or must I take the distributions over 5 years?Or is doing a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer required to maximize the time over which I take the distributions in this case? If I do the trustee-to-trustee transfer, how should the name on the IRA read?Thanks!
