She was 70-1/2 taking distributions. from pg 29/30. My wife is an individual. She is not the sole beneficiary. She is not the owner's spouse. Use table I. Are the ages in the tables the age she was in 2001?

Can each beneficiary make their own choices?

Does the amount have to be adjusted at the end of each year? Can the account be used to trade stocks as if it were my wife's IRA?

I would say very ironic that it is based on her deceased mom's life expectancy.

Thanks again for your help Ira. It is a much needed help in trying times.
