I am 55 and just retired. I will begin IRA withdrawals in 2002 and continue on the same plan for 5 years to avoid 10% penalty. I need to withdraw more than allowed by the simple IRS-described methods and am told I need to hire an actuary or other specialist to determine an appropriate assumed interest rate and calculate what I can withdraw.This seems strange. What's allowed should be the same for everyone similarly situated, so why the big mystery? Are there any online services that would allow me to input the relevant info and make the calculation for me?
