The required minimum distribution (RMD) rules are an important part of proper plan compliance. The importance of the rules is amplified by the fact that a mistake not only results in possible disqualification but also a significant penalty tax (50%). Since many practitioners encounter the RMD rules on an infrequent basis, they struggle with applying the rules in different situations. Adding to the complexity are the separate rules that apply upon the death of the participant. In addition, nonspouse beneficiary rollover rules have added a new dimension to plan administration, including the RMD rules.
This program walks you through the RMD requirements and the nonspouse beneficiary rollover rules. It is filled with examples and the kind of detailed information that is difficult to find elsewhere.
