RMD & Stretch IRA Calculator

Use this calculator to help determine how you can stretch out your payments for as long as possible. This calculator has been updated for the 'SECURE Act of 2019 and CARES Act of 2020'.

If you inherit or stretch an IRA, you have certain tax obligations with respect to required minimum distributions, or RMDs. The IRS provides important taxpayer information for beneficiaries of inherited IRAs and other retirement vehicles. RMD rules related to inherited and stretch IRAs are complicated, and missing or neglecting to take the appropriate RMDs can have serious financial consequences. For this reason, you may want to consult with a tax professional as part of your evaluation.
