SO--in your opinions, will the 70.5 yrs old mandatory withdrawals commencement ever be eliminated?
Are any of our legislators interested?

I'd have to disagree with some of the replies to this message. Obviously legislators are somewhat interested in changing this. I forget if it was SBJPA '96 or TRA '97 that congress saw fit to eliminate the 70 1/2 min required distributions from qualified retirement plans (401k's, PS, etc.) for individuals who continue to participate in their qualified retirement plan (unless they are a 5% owner). My point being, if they tinkered with it then what's to say they won't again...if press by their constiuency (sp?) to do so.
