The requirement to take an MRD has nothing to do with the age of the parent though the method for calculating it does.

o, i got the impression somewhere that had [my] Mom been under RMD age (she wasn't), i would have had to worry about RMDs till *i* reached RMD age,

AND ...

There shouldn't be any problem with the "bookkeeping" as it's a simple calculation done once a year. Most IRA custodians will do the calculation for you.

i wasn't confident whose age/table to use -- mine or Mom's

..and the 'Custodian' was no help.
...sent my glossy folder that said, "Read Pub.590"

The 5 year option is always there.

glad i got that right at least


...just read pub 590 again still sounds like a pain <g>
